15 June, 2018 | Summer vacationers and Capri locals will find that the Chanel pop-up shop has returned to Via Camerelle for the second year running. The red hue terracotta facade accessorised with ivy entwined pergola is the perfect homage to an iconic brand, known for transcending boundaries and blurring the lines between masculine and feminine.
Metiers D’Art Collection
The classic yet rebellious style of these designers is echoed throughout the shop, with tweed couches made of woollen fabric borrowed from menswear by Mademoiselle Chanel, an essential part of Chanel. The setting is suited to display the Métiers d’Art Paris-Hamburg 2017-2018 collection of bags, shoes and accessories by Karl Lagerfeld.
Displayed in the centre of the boutique is the Chanel Gabrielle Bag. Lagerfeld has created an audacious, highly referenced design in exclusive tweeds by Lesage. The wool and velvet juxtapositioned threads come in colours that recall Paris-Hamburg lights.
Chanel Camélia fine jewellery
The camellia is the inspiration behind Chanel Camélia fine jewellery collection. Included in the elegant range made to reflect Coco Chanel’s favourite flower are the Camélia Précieux ring in white gold set with a pear-cut diamond and 31 smaller diamonds, and Camélia Précieux earrings in 18ct white gold set with 82 brilliant-cut diamonds.
Eaux de Chanel Perfumes
The French couture house has created three new fragrances inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s favourite holiday spots; Paris-Deauville, Paris-Biarritz and Paris-Venice. The new bottle is reminiscent of an alcohol flask, made to be slipped into a jacket pocket. The fitted spray mechanism delivers a generous spurt of scent, much like a splash of cologne.
Deauville: The seaside town by the English channel where the young fashion designer launched her first collection. Designed to recall “a walk through long grass”. Elements of sea and country, with orange peel, basil leaf and patchouli Biarritz: The ultimate getaway for surfing where Gabrielle Chanel and Boy Capel opened a new store, three years after Deauville. Sea influenced, subtle grapefruit, mandarin, white musk and vetiver. Venice: After the death of Boy Capel, Gabrielle Chanel found refuge in Venice. Inspired by creativity and awe for the world, the fragrance is for the quintessential city-slicker, with feminine red fruit scent, iris, cedarwood and vanilla.
