Chanel And Colette Team Up For A Rock N’ Roll Pop-Up Shop
Since Karl Lagerfeld is basically the Mick Jagger of fashion, it makes total sense that Chanel is collaborating with Paris’ famed Colette boutique on a rock ‘n roll themed pop-up shop in a former garage. Intrigued? So are we.
From March 1 to 10, the French house and the French store will team up to sell Eres lingerie, scooter helmets, a collectible doll designed by Karl himself, Leica cameras, and Mademoiselle handbags decorated by five Colette-picked artists (Kevin Lyons, Soledad, André, Fadi and SO-ME, for those in the know) in a 2,200-square-foot space on Rue Saint-Honoré. There will also be a selection of Chanel bags customized by Chrome Hearts, as well as a myriad of Colette’s other products. The best part, however, might be the camellia-making demo on offer by couturiers from Chanel’s atelier Lemarié. (Though the nail bar and cupcake stand come a close second.)
For all those in Paris (and those intending to be there for the first ten days of March), we’re incredibly jealous. Could someone pick us up a Styleite-inspired camellia? Pink, please. And for the rest of you, here’s a sketch Karl drew to explain his vision for the pop-up. We’re digging the Karl-with-Guitar image we have at the top of the post, you know, but to each his own.
