Les Couleurs de Chanel, 2015

 

Using my practice of linking the physical world to the digital world -- rarely seen in the beauty industry -- I created this User Experience/User Interface for a full-scale exhibition.  Chanel possesses a broad array of aesthetics for experimentation:  from graffiti'd branding to classic graphics, the venerable company left alot wide open for an exhibition.

Much of the interaction design is based from emerging technologies that have currently just landed.  However, I felt there was enough precedence and testing to present a conceptual, marketable, and working design.  I've also included examples where similar implementable technologies and prototypes are used currently.

The inspiration came from this beautiful video that Chanel, Inc. produced in 2014.  "The Colors of Chanel" entails the inspirations behind Coco Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld's designs and processes.
