Herro! I write about fash-un!

 If you understand Mademoiselle Privé, you understand Chanel. 
The words know-how/savoir-faire can feel onerous and scholarly but at @chanelofficial  s  new iteration of #MademoisellePriveShanghai exhibition, the three pillars of the house - No.5, haute couture and high jewellery - are brought to life through animatronic flowers representing perfume note, haute couture ensembles in modern day scenarios, alive with conversation about its technical prowess and Coco Chanel s one and only 1932 high jewellery collection  Bijoux de Diamonts , recreated to show its enduring influence on the work of the jewellery atelier today
It s a brilliant showcase of Chanel s brand culture, that comes at a pertinent time, as the house enters into a new phase with Virginie Viard at its helm but also demonstrates that what the house stands for is bigger than any one creative director individual. 
It s more of a tribute to the people behind the ateliers and métiers rather than any one creative protagonist.  I particularly enjoyed (re)seeing the thirty-three haute couture ensembles in the exhibition.  When isolated by material-based innovations, things like the  selective laser sintering  Chanel suit for the 21st century or the debut of neoprene in haute couture for AW14-5 seem all the more special
