Sorry for my absence but I took a little break for the 4th of July week. Luckily we had gorgeous weather and I’ve been spending my time with my family and taking swimming breaks whenever we can. I’ve got a nice base tan going – Coco Chanel would be proud.

I’ll be updating you on the Chanel Haute Couture Fall-Winter 2013/2014 show that Chanel presented earlier this week soon.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

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 London Bond Street Chanel boutique is over 12,000 square feet and is modeled after Coco Chanel’s famed apartment at 31 Rue Cambon. The centerpiece of the boutique is a floor to ceiling sculpture of a strand of pearls. If you’re in the area you should definitely visit the new boutique – it will not disappoint.

British Vogue also has an excellent video along with interviews – you can watch it on the British Vogue website.

Rihanna Visits Chanel Apartment at 31 Rue Cambon

rihanna coco chanels apartment
Rihanna caused a bit of an internet sensation earlier this week when she posted images of herself in Coco Chanel’s apartment at 31 Rue Cambon in Paris on her Instagram account. From the looks of it, she got the full tour, sat where Coco Chanel sat and even got some Chanel gifts. Must be nice, huh? And yes, I’m totally jealous.

This trip has people speculating (AGAIN) that Rihanna will be featured in an upcoming Chanel campaign. No official word from Chanel so we’ll just have to wait and let the rumor mill run its course.
