If you understand Mademoiselle Privé, you understand Chanel. 
The words know-how and savoir-faire can feel onerous and serious but at @chanelofficial  s  new iteration of #MademoisellePrive in Shanghai s West Bund Centre, the three pillars of the house - No.5, haute couture and high jewellery - are cleverly communicated through a renewed scenography and China-specific WeChat content

Cue animatronic flowers representing notes of No5, haute couture ensembles set 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 of course a brilliant showcase of Chanel s brand culture, significantly timed, as the house enters into a new phase with Virginie Viard at its helm

But more importantly #MademoisellePriveShanghai also demonstrates that what the house stands for is bigger than any one creative director individual, as it s more of a tribute to the people behind the ateliers and métiers

I particularly enjoyed (re)seeing the thirty-three haute couture ensembles in the exhibition.  When isolated by materials, things like the  selective laser sintering  3D Chanel suit or the debut of neoprene and use of concrete netting in haute couture seem all the more special  Mademoiselle Prive isn t about product, it s about culture,  said Bruno Pavlovsky.. The exhibition definitely doesn t fetishise preservation but instead emphasises innovation and forward thinking that will steer the house ahead.  In Shanghai, where newness happens up all the time, it seemed particularly appropriate.

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.

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
