Set to be the largest Chanel store in the world, today sees the opening of the much-anticipated new Chanel flagship on New Bond Street in London’s exclusive Mayfair area. Designed by New York architect Peter Marino, the three-story townhouse comprises everything Chanel, from apparel, accessories and jewelry to beauty and fragrance. Inspired by Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, the beautiful bespoke interiors include a living room area as well as a handbag bar, opulent bronze colored walls and multiple crystal chandeliers. Adding an air of creativity, 23 pieces of contemporary art are also housed in the magnificent building, including an over-sized pearl necklace glass sculpture by French artist Jean-Michel Othonioel. –Anna Jacobsen
