Coco Chanel in Pushkin Museum

Interesting and important exhibition dedicated to the history of the famous French fashion house Chanel and its founder Gabriel Chanel will be launched at the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow on September 26 till November 21.
      The exhibition includes the real samples from fashion house Chanel, artworks by Russian avant-garde artists of the early XXth century, French surrealists and others, the rare documents and photos (by Man Ray and Mario Testino). The display will consist of five subject sections for example, Chanel and Venice, Chanel in Red, Chanel in Black.
      The House of Chanel, more commonly known as Chanel, is a Parisian fashion house founded by Gabrielle Bonheur Coco Chanel (18831971). Chanel revolutionized haute couture fashion by completely replacing the traditional corset with the comfort and casual elegance of simple suits and dresses. She introduced to the world her signature cardigan jacket in 1925, introducing a more sultry and seductive definition to sexy. She had numerous other major successes that changed the fashion industry including the ever popular Chanel suit, an elegant creation composed of a knee-length skirt and trim, boxy jacket, traditionally made of woven wool with black sewing trim and gold buttons, worn with large costume-pearl necklaces. Elite women of high societies around the world began to flock to the now legendary Rue Cambon boutique to commission couture outfits from her. The House of Chanel became an icon of elegance and from then on, the name Chanel became synonymous with elegance, wealth, and elitism, as well as the ultimate sign of French high class, la coquetterie.
