Chanel Gallery Invades Hong Kong

Is it an alien or is it just the Chanel Mobile Gallery?


If you’ve been past the Star Ferry area in Central, then you’ve most likely seen an alien spacecraft atop of it. Actually its the Chanel Mobile Art Gallery and it’s free but its also quite a unique piece of art in itself.

Chanel commissioned around 20 artists, including Yoko Ono and the Japanese photographer Nobuyoshi Araki, to produce works for the show loosely based on its famous bag and you have till April 5th to see it before it moves to Tokyo.

The big news is that Karl Lagerfeld himself will be in Hong Kong for the grand opening party next Wednesday with the architect Zaha Hadid and potentially a few of the artists and maybe even 1 or 2 world-class celebrities too, but those aren’t confirmed yet.
