The five portraits will also be accompanied by a selection of couture pieces from the fashion house, and the exhibition's aim is to shine a light on the pair's creative friendship that began in 1967. With Coco Chanel’s impact already felt across so many mediums — books, films, perfumes, and modern day sartorialism — we can't help but be excited by this glimpse into a designer's life that still proves to be utterly fascinating.
When: 5 September, to 16 November, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
