Chanel World launches in Harrods

I was on the tube today on my way back home when a big Chanel bag picture on the newspaper caught my attention. I was impressed and amazed with the news. The first thought which crossed my mind was that I had to share the news with you. So here I am.

Today, Chanel unveiled the transformed facade at Harrods in Central London. The redesigned show windows connect Karl Lagerfeld’s Fall-Winter collection with light touches of French fairy tales. It’s the first time Harrods has given over all of its most valuable, street-facing displays to a single brand. The luxury brand has taken over the famous department store and a visit there may be fully packed with good surprises.

Shoppers can also visit a one-off exhibition, called Une Promenade, on the third floor where, behind a curtain of pearl beads, they will find an enchanted garden (last seen at the Chanel spring/summer fashion show), a 2.55 exhibition showcasing the work that goes into making one of the legendary quilted handbags, a display of haute couture gowns in a replica of Coco’s apartment and an ode to the iconic Chanel No 5 perfume bottle. Une Promenade is on view for three weeks from Tuesday, September 6.

OMG! This is heaven. I will be moving home this saturday which means a hectic weekend. Hope I can manage time to visit Harrods ASAP, cos I can’t wait. 😉

Christian Lacroix Designs For Desigual

Coat, £314.00

The famous couturier (currently Monsieur Lacroix) teamed up with Barcelona high street brand Desigual on a collection of (very) intricate ensembles for Autumn 2011.

Desigual is a brand from Barcelona- Spain, with a very interesting style and design. The outfits from Desigual are recognizable where ever they are and all due to their particular kaleidoscope of colours. The collection consists of around 30 pieces including jackets, skirts and lingerie, and prices start from just £29!

The clothes have just hit Desigual stores in UK, Germany, and Spain.

I confess that I’m not so found of Monseiur Lacroix’s designs (as I prefer the classical ones). However, I admit the collection is expect to create a buzz as it will enable consumers to join the likes of celeb fans, such as Jennifer Lopez, Diane Kruger, Ginnifer Goodwin and Eva Mendes.

I’m very curious about the result. 🙂
