An Inside Look at Chanel’s Covent Garden Pop-Up Store

Chanel Covent Garden Pop Up Store

In the past two weeks I’ve posted about Chanel opening up a pop-up store in Covent Garden and now that the store is open I was able to find some images online of the boutique. The Chanel Covent Garden boutique boasts a nail bar, makeup stations where you can get makeovers and cosmetic vending machines coming in the fall.

Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge of the Chanel makeup video tutorials will drop by in December to give makeup lessons and nail artist extraordinaire Sophy Robson will be at the nail bar. You’ll find the store stocked with the Chanel cosmetics range including hard-to-find limited edition collections. The Chanel Covent Garden boutique is open now through December 2012 – to learn more about upcoming events visit the Chanel Covent Garden website.

Chanel Opens Covent Garden Pop-Up Shop

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.

Colette and Chanel Pop Up Shop Photos

I wish I were in Paris pretty much every day of the year, but I especially want to be there this week!  From now through the 10th, Colette and Chanel have teamed up to provide one of the coolest shopping experiences ever.  Fortunately, Susie Bubble of Style Bubble checked out the shop and took some nice photos so I will be living vicariously through her… sigh.  All images are from StyleBubble.com – Merci!

I want everything pictured below.  I’m so sad I’m not there.  For more descriptions of all the prettiness and to hear about it from someone who’s actually seen it, please visit Style Bubble!  Oh, and the last image is of a new Coco tee by Dear Dana that Colette recently added to their webstore – I like it but it’s a $100 t-shirt.  I’d rather put that money toward the Coco doll!!  If anyone knows if that doll is for sale, and if so for how much and how to get one please let me know!!

Chanel + Colette Ephemeral Boutique (Pop-Up Shop)

My favorite brand is teaming up with my favorite Parisian boutique, Colette, to create a separate ephemeral boutique (or pop up shop as we Americans like to say) from March 1st to 10th on 336-340 rue Saint-Honoré.  The boutique will span 200 m² and has an industrial feel as the setting is “a former garage turned into a giant living display space.”

The fashion installation will be a multi-sensory delight with visual arts, musical performances, fashion, and sweet treats “resulting in a fun-fuelled, creative mix and match by Chanel and Colette with a rock ‘n’ roll vibe.”

Chanel 2011 Spring-Summer pieces will be sold alongside select pieces by young designers curated by Colette.  Artists including Kevin Lyons, Soledad, André, Fafi and SO-ME will be on hand to customized legendary Chanel bags.  Karl Lagerfeld designed a collector’s doll and other special Chanel products will be sold including bag charms, helmets and cameras.  For this momentous occasion, Chanel created a compilation CD and scented candles.  To top it off there will be a Chanel nail bar and a cupcake bar!

This may be the best pop-up shop EVER.  I almost want to buy a ticket to Paris to see this for myself.  I hope the special edition products – especially the doll – will be sold online!  I NEED ONE!

Here’s a breakdown of the events – if you live in Paris and you go – I will be living vicariously through you!


Friends of Chanel are special guests to be discovered as in house DJs, and five artists invited by Colette will be customising Chanel bags, upon request.

March 1: Kevin Lyons, designer and illustrator, will be customising bags, 4pm – 6pm
March 2: Camellia demonstration by a Lemarié craftsman, 3pm – 6pm
March 3: The illustrator Soledad will be customising bags, 4pm – 6pm
March 4: Harpsichord performance by the pianist and composer Maxence Cyrin, from 5pm
March 5: Graffiti artist André will be customising bags, 3pm – 6pm
March 7: Graffiti artist Fafi will be customising bags, 4pm – 6pm
March 8: Chanel nail bar, 3pm – 6pm
March 9: SO-ME, graphic artist and illustrator, will be customising bags, 4pm – 6pm
March 10: Chanel nail bar, 3pm – 6pm

Chanel 2011 Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection Post Cards

A few months back we mentioned that Chanel opened a pop-up shop in the Meatpacking District of New York to house the Chanel Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection.  As part of the St. Tropez feeling of the shop, customers could pick up Chanel postcards featuring images of Georgia May Jagger from the Cruise Collection ad campaign.

I wasn’t able to make it to the shop but Ruby from the Chanel at the Encore in Las Vegas was nice enough to send me a set of the postcards.  This “thank you” is long overdue but you can see the beautiful stationary and postcards below…

Chanel Pop-Up Shop in the Meatpacking District, NYC

Once a retail experience left for guerilla brands like Comme des Garçons or brands that don’t have actual retail locations, the pop-up shop is the retail experience du jour.  Pop-up shops are popping up all over – and now Chanel has joined the fun.

To celebrate the release of its Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection, Chanel has opened up shop in the Meatpacking District of New York City inside a section of Jeffrey New York.  The feel of Saint-Tropez and its signature Café Sénéquier have been recreated inside the 1,000-square foot space.  The café’s iconic red laquer tables and umbrellas are featured alongside “red Chanel awnings, dressing rooms that resemble beach cabins and stands stocked with postcards of Chanel’s cruise campaign featuring Georgia May Jagger.”  (WWD).

“We loved the experience of the show, and we thought, How can we create the kind of a moment in New York,” said Barbara Cirkva, division president of fashion, watches and fine jewelry at Chanel Inc. “I don’t think of it as a pop-up shop, but almost as an installation that recreates the magic of Saint-Tropez in New York, and gets everyone in the mood as they are thinking about going away for the holiday.”

The pop-up shop carries the Côte d’Azur Cruise Collection as well as a selection of men’s ties and J12 watches.  The boutique will host a party on November 30th and will remain open through January 4, 2011.  If you are in NY, you should definitely try to stop by and pick up a free postcard!  I wonder if Chanel will start having more pop-up shops in the future…we shall see.
