There's been plenty of talk about the actual building Zaha Hadid constructed for Chanel's two year Mobile Art Tour. But IHT finally sent someone inside to tell everyone who can't hop, skip and jump to Hong Kong exactly what happens when 20 international artists are challenged to interpret Chanel's 2.55 bag.

While most chose to render a physical interpretation of the iconic handbag, the Japanese artist Tabaimo created a well in which the viewer looks down on walls covered in "floating objects, representing the dreams of Chanel customers." We're very curious as to what the dreams of Chanel customers look like. Do they involve Karl? Are they littered with double 'C' rhinestone earrings? Do visions of 2.55 bags wearing tweed jackets dance in their head? Guess we'll have to wait for the exhibit to hit New York in September. In the meantime, we might stop by the Chanel store after work and see if anything comes to us.
