Art • GoSee loves... Marilyn Minter: Pretty/Dirty. Book Signing with the exceptional artist at Bookmarc NY and a preview of an extensive exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston

16.05.2015 • A gem of West Village and a hotspot for all fashion and photo freaks is Marc Jacob's bookstore, BOOKMARC, with which he expanded his empire on Bleecker Street when he opened it in September, 2010. On May 14th, Marilyn Minter presented her new book 'Pretty/Dirty', a compilation of her glossy works from over the past forty years. GoSee was there and met the charismatic American artist. Plus the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston is showing the same-titled exhibition until the 2nd of August, 2015. After further stations in the USA, it will finally be shown in Brooklyn Museum from September 2016 through January 2017.

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...
