The Biggest in the World

This week saw the opening of the largest
CHANEL boutique in the world

Yes! it's here in my home town-London.

It's 3 storeys high and 12,600 square feet!

 The stats surprised me too as 
I thought the biggest had to be in Paris

The centre-piece is a HUGE sculpture 
inspired by Coco Chanel's pearls. It's made from
Venetian blown glass.
What do you think?

The boutique could easily be mistaken for a stately home.

No detail is left out which include; 
*lush tweed sofas

*hand stitched curtains with pearls
*gorgeous tweed chairs which line the hand-bag bar
*crystal chandeliers

*silk woven walls  supporting some of the
most expensive handbags in the world

Apparently the changing rooms are the epitome
of decadence (I like decadence ;-)

Chanel 2013

I am going to visit on Friday. I hope
it lives up to all the hype.

Happy Weekend Lovelies

  7. I'm surprised that we have the biggest store and I think the sculpture being inspired by Coco's pearls is wonderful and a lovely idea. It's certainly a very luxurious and comfortable place to shop!

    1. Well I can't imagine the shop ever being crowded ;-)

  8. What an absolutely stunning shop. I'm just in awe of that centerpiece. You are so lucky to be able to visit in person. Do enjoy!

  15. Wow Vanessa! This is incredible and the Venetian glass "pearls" are a show stopper for sure. Love the dress..classic Chanel! The interior is obviously designed so visitors can rest ;) as their wife or significant other shop. I'm sure you will enjoy your visit there!!

    Thanks for visiting today! I'm assuming agave was banned because its a vegetable based high fructose sugar. Agave isn't as great as we once thought it was. The question is .. Is it better to use a little agave or a traditional mix or liqueur that contains HFCS?? I go back with this one;)


  16. What a great post Vanessa! And how lucky you are to live in London! And have that boutique:) xo Caroline

  17. Presently, Continental earrings are in fashion. This brings a trendy and classy appearance to the wearer. Generally, this ornament comes in a bundle of gem stones suspended on a stick thereby producing a picture of flower or fruit. These accessories are simple but eye catching. You will be amazed to see all the collections.

  18. Thanks for your kind visit doll, hope your week is going well :)
