Upon arriving at the installation, I entered through a lavish curtain of white beads — an homage to the pearls adored by Mademoiselle Chanel — and then made my way to a whimsical children’s bedroom filled with dolls and sketches designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Another room was transformed to resemble Gabrielle Chanel’s glamorous Paris apartment at 31 Rue Cambon filled with mirrors, rare vintage dresses and stunning mannequins; while a pop art room covered with silk-screened images of the famed CHANEL No. 5 perfume bottle intrigued passersby.
To finish off the tour, a playful room of games and lights featured a larger-than-life size handbag featuring CHANEL icons: the lion, clover leaf, double C's, perfume bottle and more; and an ingenious claw machine filled with gift bags begged guests to try their luck at scoring some designer swag in Sin City.
