... original press kit from the "bijoux de diamants" exhibition in paris, 1932. this is just one of the many gems currently on display at the culture chanel exhibition at moca shanghai. the culture chanel website is a pretty comprehensive virtual guide for those of us who couldn't be there. the video on le baudruchage [under origins] of chanel N°5 bottle is simply exquisite. and did you know where the double "C" monogram came from [under abstraction]? sorry it's a flash site, so no permanent links... but stay a while and play around, you won't be disappointed!
