In December 2017, Chanel revealed plans of a new site dedicated to Chanel Métiers d’art. To be completed in 2020 at the Porte d’Aubervilliers by architect Rudy Riccotti, the five-floor space with two basements will serve as an event space for fashion-related activities. On Monday, Chanel laid the first brick into place with: Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris; Patrick Braouezec, President of the Plaine Commune; Meriem Derkaoui, Mayor of Aubervilliers; François Dagnaud, Mayor of the 19th arrondissement; and Ricciotti.
Last week in Paris, Nike’s Jordan brand announced a year-long partnership with France’s legendary Paris Saint-Germain team. So, on Tuesday, we traveled down to 45 Grand Street to celebrate the joining of these two iconic brands at a pop-up that merged cultureand art for an unforgettable immersive experience. Celebrating the future legacy of sports and style, the new space welcomed special guests to a private screening of the game versus Liverpool, while showcasing signature stadium seating, images of pro athletes by Marwan Shousher, remixed sports chants by band Ho9909 and art installations by Thom Stevenson.
And last night at the McIntosh Townhouse, D’USSÉ held its second annual “Re-Mixer” event, complete with cocktail making lessons and classes by the house’s cellar master, Michael Casavecchia, music producer 9th Wonder, and Derek Brown of Columbia Room in Washington D.C. Throughout the sweeping spaces, we explored how taste and sound can be mixed and reimaged by taking turns on DJ equipment, crafting our own cocktails, and talking about the history of music and cognac.
