Allan McCollum’s “Each and Every One of You” may have started out here in Tampa, as a Graphicstudio edition, but it has since traveled to La Salle de Bains in Lyon and Galerie Thomas Schulte in Berlin. And now, a commissioned version of the work entitled “One Thousand Women” has been installed at a flagship Chanel store in London. If you’re in the area, you can find it at 167-170 Sloane Street. More about why “One Thousand Women” was selected for the flagship store on the Coco Chanel blog.

The original “Each and Every One of You” piece included 600 of the most popular men’s names and 600 of the most popular women’s names. And, you guessed it, for the unique Chanel piece, 600 male names were removed and 400 new women’s names were added.

Our very own, Matthew Squires, traveled to London to assist with the installation. Click through the slideshow below for an inside look at how it was put together, and a few shots of the completed project from a day before opening. The store is now open, and McCollum’s work looks great in it!
