Coco Chanel: A New Portrait by Marion Pike, Paris 1967-71, consisting of five portraits of her mother’s dear friend, Gabrielle “Coco” Bonheur Chanel. The portraits have never been presented together, so far. In addition, the exhibition will showcase also a couple of couture pieces designed by Coco specially for Marion Pike and her daughter. The works of art surprise the life stories and the friendship of the these two creative and talented minds, that shared together a very deep connection.
The two women met back in 1967, when Marion Pike painted Coco’s portrait. She became a very good friend of the designer, spending, at a certain point, seven months in Paris, observing Coco’s work. After the long visit, the artist, being asked by the Los Angeles Times, how did she feel like observing Chanel’s creative process, explained: “The atmosphere was frayed nerves, excitement, enthusiasm, frustration, gloom, and energy. It was watching the creation of art in its purest sense.”
The wonderful Coco Chanel exhibition, curated by Amy de la Haye, will be hosted by the London Colllege of Fashion, at the Fashion Space Gallery. The exhibits can be admired starting September 5th.
The sporty i8 is expected to use a 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that drives the rear wheels, coupled to an electric motor that drives the front wheels. Early reports indicate the i8 will be very light – just over 3,100 pounds – and will produce nearly 400 hp. It will go from 0-60 in under five seconds. On just electricity, the i8 is likely to have range of 20 miles.
The introduction of the i8 indicates that BMW is serious about their electric series. Adding a high performance electric auto to their lineup should allow BMW to snag some of the attention that Tesla has garnered – and put BMW into a leadership role in the area of electric auto making.
