Irma Boom ontwerpt boek zonder inkt – ‘you don’t see it, but it’s there’ – CHANEL No 5
In addition to the catalogue of the Culture Chanel exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris (from May 5th to June 5th 2013) dedicated to N°5, curator Jean-Louis Froment asked Irma Boom an exceptional book, bringing together images and quotations illustrating No 5. Entirely white, no text is printed, all pages are embossed and reflect the world of Gabrielle Chanel.
Built on a subtle interchange of correspondence, this exhibition elucidates CHANEL N°5 and showcases the connections it has to its era and its avant-garde movements
