Yesterday I showed you what me and my friends wore to the Chanel exhibition in The Hague. Let’s look at the actual exhibition itself. 

The exhibition chronicles the life of Coco Chanel and her achievements as a design. Above are some of her designs from the 30s.


Coco Chanel is also famous for her little black dress. Here are a number of her creations. Which model is your favorite?


She made a comback in the 1950s where she create the iconic Chanel suit.


When Coco Chanel died, other designers were hired to continue the Chanel brand. Karl Lagerfeld started in 1983 and has been its creative director ever since.




We also had the opportunity to channel a bit of Coco Chanel. Some of her iconic jackets were available for a special photo shoot. Lighting was already setup. All we had to do is wear the jackets and take our own photos. Here are the results!

Chanel-26 Chanel-25   Chanel-22 Chanel-21



The Chanel exhibition takes place at Gemeentemuseum, The Hague, The Netherlands until 2/2/2014. More info here.

So what do you think? Who wears the Chanel jacket the best?
