Posts Tagged ‘the gap’

as residents of virginia, philly, and virginia, we are always bitter when super things happen in new york and we can’t make it to the city in time to attend.

i.e. it really sucked when, after spending quality time with the original paris-based colette, we didn’t have a chance to see the gap + colette store when it sprung up in september and then quickly vanished. bum.

now, we are once again missing out on yet another enticing culture pod: karl lagerfeld’s ode to a purse, currently taking up residence in central park. the “chanel mobile art pavilion”, commissioned by largerfeld and designed by architect zaha hadid (she, is really really wonderful, and also one of three fantastic guest editors for the current issue of wallpaper), contains loads of art inspired by the Chanel 2.55 bag. the roving museum’s international tour also includes stops in hong kong, tokyo, london, moscow, and paris. new york magazine has very kindly posted a video tour for those of us who can’t make it to manhattan in time.

(for those of you who can, the exhibit is open until 9 november, and tickets are free)

we will admit, we were expecting 200+ artfully done yet eventually dull photos of purses, but to our gleeful surprise some of the pieces seem to be really well done, both in concept and execution. definitely, absolutely, worth your time.
