Chanel is opening a 300 square meter pop-up boutique in Cannes featuring selections from the Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear and Paris-Byzance collections. The boutique’s color palette is black and gold and has black mosaic floors, sequined carpets and “offers a view all the way down to the stairs leading up to the Palais des Festivals.”
The make-up bar presents the Lumières Byzantines eye shadow palette, created by Peter Philips for the Paris-Byzance collection. The nail bar, meanwhile, highlights a summer palette.
There are pieces from the Paris-Byzance collection as a sneak preview amidst designs from the Spring-Summer 2011 Ready-to-Wear collection, and dresses and suits – on loan from the Chanel Conservatory – worn by those loyal to the House, such as Keira Knightley, Michelle Williams, Penelope Cruz and Michelle Mercier.
The Cannes Ephemeral Boutique will be open from May 7th to May 22nd 2011 from 10am to 7pm. The address is: 6, Boulevard de la Croisette, 06400 Cannes, France.
I wish I could go! I’m hoping Chanel will post images from the boutique – it sounds exquisite!
