Chanel Unveils Its Largest Boutique on Bond Street in London

Peter Marino, the architect of choice for luxury brands has re-designed the newly unveiled Chanel London flagship, now the largest Chanel boutique in the world.

The once pop-up Chanel beauty boutique in Covent Garden will now be a permanent fixture – the first stand-alone Chanel beauty boutique. To celebrate Mother’s Day in the U.K. this weekend (March 10), Chanel will have a flower stall parked outside the boutique from March 8-10. The mobile Chanel flower stall will feature giant bottles of its most popular scents, as well as the flowers that are at the heart of those fragrances. From March 8-10 you can pick up some roses for your mum along with a personalized camellia card.

Chanel Covent Garden Holiday 2012 Pop-Up Shop

chanel christmas tree chanel holiday 2012 covent garden

The Chanel pop-up shop in Covent Garden is back in time for the holidays and has some great new special features just for this time of year. In the spirit of gift giving you can have purchases wrapped complete with a card “signed” by Mlle. Chanel. Also for the first time you can purchase a Chanel gift card. I saw images of a collection of mini Les Exclusifs bottles but I received confirmation from Chanel that the set is not for sale – so sad I’ve been wanting that so badly! If you went to the shop early then you may have been lucky enough to get a logo pin as well. If you’re in London definitely stop by the Chanel pop-up shop in Covent Garden.

On July 24th, Chanel is opening a pop-up shop in the heart of Covent Garden just in time for the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The shop will be home to many exciting activities, events and products as it stays open through December 2012. On opening day, you’ll see mimes wearing Chanel jewelry pointing the way to the Chanel boutique which will have the limited edition makeup collection Bleu Illusion.

Chanel is rumored to have teamed up for a fragrance collaboration with a local flower stall. Vouge UK reported:

In addition to exclusive new products, which will launch at the boutique over the next seven months, planned highlights will include a Chanel treasure hunt; educational workshops; consultations with leading Chanel make-up experts; a luxurious space dedicated to facials and pampering; an outdoor area that will recreate the look and atmosphere of being backstage at one of the label’s catwalk shows; and a very special festive surprise come Christmas.

Chanel will also be announcing more events throughout the coming months so stay tuned for more exciting news! I can’t wait to see more. I’ll keep you posted.

Chanel Ephemeral Boutique Capri, Italy Summer 2012

On the heels of opening a pop-up shop at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez, last week Chanel opened an ephemeral boutique on the Italian island of Capri, a historically elite holiday retreat. In the same way that Coco Chanel chose exclusive vacation resorts as the locations of her boutiques, Chanel is focusing on the travel destinations of those who appreciate luxury and have money to burn.

“In the shade of the towering palm trees, guests will savour the exquisite scent of orange and lemon trees while cascades of jasmine perfume the air” as they peruse the Paris-Bombay 2012 Métiers d’Art pre-fall collection. The Chanel ephemeral boutique in Capri has a bohemian feel and is decorated with vintage trunks that perfectly accompany the Paris-Bombay collection.

Ephemeral Boutique
From June 4th to September 30th 2012

Chanel Ephemeral Boutique in St. Tropez Summer 2012

Summer Chanel Ephemeral Boutique in St. Tropez
The Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez is home to a new Chanel Ephemeral boutique that will showcase the Chanel Paris-Bombay and the spring-summer 2012 collections. The XIX century architecture of the Hotel La Mistralée is juxtaposed with geometric patterns and bright colors reminiscent of the 1980s.

To commemorate the opening of the he Chanel Ephemeral boutique at the Hotel La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez Chanel created a limited edition beach tote bag complete with woven straw mat and towel. It’s been pretty much impossible to find a photo of this mysterious tote online but I’m trying to get one! I’ll update you if I find one. The boutique will be open until October 2012.
