Mlle. “Coco” Chanel was influenced by the many different places she lived or visited during her lifetime, and Culture Chanel’s new exhibit opening in Seoul on August 30th explores these inspirations. The show, “A Sense of Places,” includes more than 500 pieces of Chanel memorabilia, all with a connection to places the icon has lived or visited. The show is at Seoul’s Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP), a stunning new exhibit hall designed by world-renowned architect Zaha Hadid. It runs until October 5. Jean-Louis Froment is curator for the exhibit.
