I hope everyone has had a lovely week, tomorrow is Friday woohoo! Pre warning this post maybe a bit long but worth every Chanel second.
So in my last post I told you guys about the launch of the biggest Chanel in the world opening on New Bond Street on Wednesday. WOW is all I have to say, having done a tour of it partially ready, I was really excited to see the store with all the stock and art pieces in! The launch coincided with the rerelease of the Paris-Edimbourg collection (the annual Métiers D'Art collection which was shown in Linlithgow Palace). The collection was inspired by Karl's love for Mary Queen of Scotts (apt location as it was where Mary and Queen Consort of France were born)
It was fun to go in and explore the space, it's perfection and you just feel at home, the aesthetic for the store is to capture Coco's loves, style and a homely feel. I can honestly say I want to move in, and that I'm cheating on Rue Cambon!
So here are a few snaps from inside and pieces available from a special and unique collection....
The Diamond Stag on arrival
The Handbag Bar
The exclusive perfume collections
(Situated in the new beauty section)
A vintage table, for the exotics and collectors room
The opening room to shoes department
Tweed sofas and vintage chairs
I die for the chandeliers
After you pay, you wait in a beautiful space full of art and chanel books
And now for the pretty goodies.....
I absolutely love every piece from this collection, the jumpers, the yeti bags, the chain and tartan Boy bags, the classic pearls, and the broaches are just perfection! The shoes are just mouth watering! I walked away wit these highland boot....
Now here's where my Wednesday just gets even more exciting, having interned in Paris, I've always bern the one guiding people to their seats, making sure everything is ready etc and not truly getting the Chanel experience like the guest (rightly so, it's work not pleasure right ;) ) so I was asked to join 30 exclusive guests and boutique managers for a second show of the collection! Yep I got the champagne treatment and a frow to a private showing of the collection in the new third floor exclusive area in the store (you are able to book in a private shopping experience and can explore the collection). The captured the ambiance of the collection with dimmed lights and candles, and I got my new AW inspiration (Saint Laurent take note please, this is how you do highland grunge chic!) Excuse my blurry photos, here are a few I took :)
I definitely got a lot of inspiration, this whole collation really captures my style, and love to mix girly with grunge chic!
What do you guys think of the collection, the aesthetic and the new space?! And who's going and what's on your shopping list?!
Thanks for reading guys!
Lots of love
