Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion: The Giftbag

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Because none of you are sick of it yet, let's turn once again to the Chanel Mobile Art Pavilion that's currently hovering in Central Park. A Racked tipster attended the big celeb-studded opening bash for the futuristic, Zaha Hadid-designed structure on Tuesday night and has kindly volunteered to share the contents of his orb-covered made in Italy gift bag. It contains: CDs with portfolios of the artists and of the pavilion, the first three Chanel Mobile Art issues (Hong Kong, Tokyo and NYC), two portfolios with photos of the art, and a little certificate of authenticity (we hear that the VIPs also got Chanel No. 5 in theirs). Forget what's inside, though—take a look at that bag. We checked and there aren't any on eBay, but it's just a matter of time.
