An interesting union of the classic elegance of Chanel combined with the contemporary popular culture tour de force known as Colette and voila! The fashion house is given a new, youthful look through its collaboration with Colette and the creation of this pop-up shop mash up was born (March 1st-10th 2011).
Chanel collector dolls (featuring Colette’s iconic blue shade) and key fobs with Lagerfeld’s head were sold alongside selected pieces from Chanel’s prêt-à-porter line. Let’s not forget Colette’s ability to pair artwork and other paraphernalia (cupcake bar included) which adds a ‘rock-and-roll’ vibe to the former garage space. egendary Chanel bags and this season’s designs, including a Mademoiselle bag in the famous cobalt blue Colette color, were customized by various artists including Kevin Lyons, André , Fafi and SO-ME. Meanwhile, LEMARIÉ unveiled the camellia’s secrets, offering a selection of blue, black and white camellias. ÉRES was included in the mix, with pieces from its collection in a palette of black and iridescent hues, next to the Maison Michel’s spotted veils. Also waiting to be discovered, or rediscovered, is a selection of books published by Éditions 7L and back issues of Visionaire magazine. Even more playful and unusual surprises await in the form of a collector’s doll by Karl Lagerfeld, CHANEL bags customised by CHROME HEARTS , YAZBUKEY bag charms, RUBY helmets, and cameras by LEICA.
