Events • 'A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.' Chanel introducing Eau Premère with the event "No. 5 in a New Light" - popping up in New York in the delightful month of May

13.05.2015 •  "No. 5 in a New Light"—Chanel is publically celebrating its 94-year old fragrance, bringing it to new life so it can endure the changing times. Even if the flacon design is celebrated in the Museum of Modern Art – it's an open secret, that self-aggrandizement is the best stylistic means of keeping the brand in customer's minds and the sales figures up. Gabrielle Chanel knew that; Karl Lagerfeld knows it, ... and so does CHANEL Master Parfumeur Jacques Polge, who has brought Eau Première, a lighter version of the perfume classic, onto the market. And, of course, the event has been meticulously planned down to the very last detail – visitors are guided through five stations, each of them realized with confident style and accompanied by excellently instructed, charming young male models. Because if Coco Chanel was already the opinion that, 'A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future' – then no one should ever forget the seductive point of the exercise – cherchez l'homme! We filmed the young charming men for you. Showtime! on GoSee.

We present you the press release on the...

Events • Tête-à-tête with Karl Lagerfeld. The Hyères Festival de mode et de la photographie 2015 celebrates its 30th anniversary with a CHANEL exhibition, fashion shows, and young designers. GoSee was there.

12.05.2015 • Tête-à-tête with Karl Lagerfeld? That's not very likely even in Hyères. Neither will you get a career as a fashion designer on a silver platter; not to mention one as an international shooting star photographer after receiving an award. So what's the secret behind Villa Noailles, the very French Festival of Fashion and Photography? Why has the festival in southern France existed for 30 years now? "It wasn't that easy to organize the festival every year," founder Jean-Pierre Blanc, who was notably moved to tears, stated clearly at the press conference held at the opening of the festival. In 2015, and its 30th year, his dreams seem to have come true. The House of Chanel represented by Creative Studio Director Virginie Viard, Image Director Eric Pfrunder and Karl Lagerfeld has brought the event in 2015 worldwide attention and stood side by side with equally famous jury colleagues including Caroline von Monacco or Sebastien Tellier next to Jean-Pierre Blanc.

From the 23rd through the 27th of April, the star-studded 30th Festival International de Mode et de Photographie took place...

Events • GoSee presents Weitsprung 2015 : the Art Buying teams of KOLLE REBBE, JUNG VON MATT, TJHNK/LOVED, and SCHOLZ & FRIENDS in a portfolio frenzy to support 'emerging talents'

28.04.2015 • On 17 April, 2015, the third Weitsprung took place in Hamburg. 13 Art Buyers took a day to have a look at the portfolios of new young photographers and to give the participants constructive feedback on their work during the viewings from an agency POV. They certainly have unbeatable tips for the future, because these Art Buyers select talents for the campaigns of the four largest German advertising agencies.

However, work already began a few months beforehand with the call for applications. More than 250 young photographers anxiously awaited an invitation from one of the 13 Art Buyers. 60 were selected, each of them was granted an appointment of 30 minutes with two agencies. In the evening, the creatives from all four agencies got together. Each of the 400 guests was given 10 balls, with which they could cast their vote for their favorite photographers.

The most popular portfolio was that of Cedric Schanze, followed by those of Lisa Winter and Sarah Kühl. However, all other photographers could see themselves as winners also, due to the fact that they too received a lot...

easter promotion • Photographer Ragnar SCHMUCK stages the poster motif for the concept shopping mall BIKINI BERLIN

28.04.2015 • 'Finally more Easter' was a promise on the billboard of the concept shopping mall BIKINI BERLIN – with a loud bang on the billboard motif created by NERGER M&O photographer Ragnar SCHMUCK. An exceptional selection of fashion, food and design is what to expect.

About - BIKINI BERLIN, the revitalised destination in the City West, combines aspects of life like work, relaxation, accommodation and entertainment with unconventional shopping experiences. BIKINI BERLIN – which is so very different from regular shopping centres – sees itself as a Concept Shopping Mall, a compilation of carefully curated and coordinated boutiques, concept and flagship stores, as well as gastronomy offers and service providers. Instead of branches of ubiquitous chain stores, on the lower three floors of the Bikinihaus visitors will discover numerous retail stores that have not yet been fully established in Berlin or the rest of Germany. With this individually coordinated offer, the Concept Shopping Mall, a name coined by BIKINI BERLIN, is aimed at a trend and style-conscious international audience with...

Events • Making Africa - A Continent of Contemporary Design until 13 September 2015 at Vitra Design Museum

25.04.2015 • From March 2015, a major exhibition by the Vitra Design Museum sheds new light on contemporary African design. Showcasing the work of over 120 artists and designers, »Making Africa – A Continent of Contemporary Design« illustrates how design accompanies and fuels economic and political changes on the continent. Africa is presented as a hub of experimentation generating new approaches and solutions of worldwide relevance – and as a driving force for a new discussion of the potential of design in the twenty-first century.

When the »African boom« comes up in the media, the reports tend to focus on the continent’s fast-paced economic growth or the rapidly expanding middle class – phenomena that will remain at the root of fundamental changes in coming decades. However, another development has already altered the everyday lives of all Africans and yields a significant influence upon the work of artists and designers. At present, there are already 650 million registered mobile phones in Africa, more than in Europe or the US. Many of these devices have access to the Internet and thus...

22.04.2015 •  "It just keeps getting better at the Art Cologne," said Arne Ehmann from the Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery (Paris/Salzburg). It was also a great success for the David Zwirner Gallery (New York/London), which was happy to welcome visitors from Italy and the Benelux countries. "The Art Cologne offers good quality in all areas," Director Veronique Ansorge praised. "Cologne is always good for us," Bjerggaard Bo from Copenhagen adds, who was able to welcome collectors and museum professionals to his booth.

The final report of the ART COLOGNE was so overwhelmingly positive for the exhibitors. And Carsten Greve Gallery told us in a nutshell: "On Wednesday, you could already feel the excitement in the air – and that wasn't always the case in the past few years. We are very satisfied with how it has developed." He then added: "Our opening in the city was very successful too." Meaning: it was almost sold out. And Marietta Clages Gallery explains: "In Cologne, you really continue selling until Sunday, the very last moment of the fair." Her radiant face showed us, however, that Marietta...
