Chanel Lands in Central Park

Chanel’s Zaha Hadid-designed pavilion, which debuted last year at Venice’s Art Biennale and will circulate in Asia, the U.S. and Europe for a total of two years, will take up temporary residence in Central Park’s Rumsey Playfield this Monday. Made of 700-odd parts, the structure, which “houses 18 modern artists’ odes to the iconic Chanel 2.55 handbag,” will likely put Jeanne-Claude and Christo’s late gates to shame.

While the sleek, space-age pavilion opens to the public on October 21, on Tuesday night, it will house a much-anticipated opening party sure to draw boldfacers from around the globe. On hand as entertainment will be a New York-based disco-friendly act whose name I won’t mention for fear of persecution from the Kaiser himself. But, rest assured, there’ll be an exhaustive recap in store whenever this blogger is able to peel herself out of bed on Wednesday morning.
