Back in January 2012, if you were one of the fashion industry's insider -- whether you were a fashion magazine editor (pretty much all the major editors from Vogue and other Conde Nast publications) a top fashion blogger or run your own internet fashion magazine (like WHO WHAT WEAR's Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr) a celebrity stylist (like Rachel Zoe and other frenemies she has made through her hit Bravo show) a fashion writer (like Derek Blasberg) or just a sought after fashionista (like Alexa Chung and Jessica Alba) -- chances are you got an invite to the opening of Chanel's exclusive Numéros Privés installation at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas and got treated like royalty by the French fashion house. From a luxurious car service to an equally luxurious room service and other special gifts donned with that iconic interlocking C's, the weekend was every Chanel enthusiast's dream.
According to Leslie Kirchhoff of Vogue.com the event which was aptly named Numéros Privés, each space focused on a different part of the label, often the iconic numbers associated with the brand. The first was a bedroom celebrating the Lagerfeld era and complete with dolls and sketches designed by the fashion icon. In another room, video screens displayed the production process of the 2.55 handbag, and the next was a recreation of Coco’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon and a display of haute couture gowns. At the end of the walk-through, guests were met by two claw arcade games with wrapped Chanel prizes inside—ranging from nail polish to fine jewelry—that almost stole the show as guests lined up to try their hand at taking home a big prize. The evening's entertainment included an acrobatic/ballerina exhibit during cocktails and later a performance by singer, Imelda May.
Now my question is, where can I find one of those mini Coco Chanel lego looking dolls and when is it my turn on the Chanel claw arcade game?? A girl can dream, right?
