Last night was the preview party for the new Chanel London Flagship and I was beyond excited to have been invited by a girlfriend who works for Peter Marino, the designer that brought this dream boutique to life.
The boutique, which doesn’t officially open doors until this Wednesday (June 12) is 12,600 square feet, three stories, and has the prettiest dressing rooms I have ever seen.The centre-piece of the store is a giant sculpture that of Chanel’s iconic pearls which is made from hand-blown Venetian glass.
The first floor feels like you’ve just stepped into Mademoiselle Chanel’s own living room. The curtains feature hand-stiched pearls and the gorgeous chandeliers are made up of real crystal.
Make sure you make your way to the handbag bar, which offers customers the sweetest tweed chairs to perch on while drooling over that clutch you need to have.
The best part of the evening was being handed little black box as a parting gift, with a gorgeous Chanel brooch inside. It’s already pinned on my favorite blazer.
For any Chanel lover, you simply just must see it for yourself.
