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.
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.
Here are the final three videos from Chanel on the N°5 CULTURE CHANEL exhibition. The videos feature the artwork that is part of the exhibit, an interview with Chanel’s “nose” Jacques Polge and a recap of the installation to celebrate its closing on June 5th. I’m hoping this exhibit will travel – I would love to see it!

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.
Chanel will present its Cruise 2013/14 collection on May 9th, 2013 at the Loewen Cluster in Singapore. Chanel has just released an image of the Chanel Cruise 2013/14 invitation featuring a sketch by Karl Lagerfeld. I’m excited to see this collection!
