Chanel And Colette
From Eye Prefer Paris…
Pop-up shops are all the rage in Paris and and two eponymous French fashion brands have come together to open one just in time for fashion week. The original concept shop Colette and the legendary house of Chanel, a most fashionable dynamic duo, have created a shop/installation space in a former gas station and garage.
A stones throw away from the Colette boutique on the rue St. Honoré, the 2,000 sq. meter space still looks like a garage with cement floors and the vibe is spontaneous and fun with a touch of rock n’ roll. Serious pieces from the Chanel Spring 2011 collection are mixed with up and coming designers specially chosen by Colette. Classic Chanel bags will be transformed into modern day collectible art pieces customized by artists Kevin Lyons, Soledad, Fafi, André, and SO-ME. Accessory house Le Marie, famous for its hat feathers, is unveiling a new batch of blue, black, and white silk camellias to put on your Chanel or jean jacket.
Other delights created just for the shop are a collector’s doll by Karl Lagerfeld, a Chanel bag customized by Chrome Hearts, Yazbukey bag charms, Ruby helmets, and cameras by Leica.
