Inside Chanel Joaillerie

by Farra

Located at 18 Place Vendôme in Paris, CHANEL Joaillerie is “a majestic place that culminates all the elements of Coco Chanel’s legacy at retail level. Opened in ’97 and re-designed by the one-and-only Peter Marino a decade later, it’s blooming with Coco’s camellia flower, sparkling with crystals and a custom chandelier, glistening with golden wheat, adorned with animal artifacts and luxed out with lacquered surfaces… Every inch of CHANEL Joaillerie is a nod to Coco and her infamous abode at 31 Rue Cambon, which is a mere step from the store… The Joaillerie is an enchanting place, which dedicates itself to preserving the traditions of CHANEL and the classics Coco created. Staying true to the iconic black-and-white aesthetic, it’s filled with fresh takes on Coco’s staples, embracing her innovative philosophies with an updated twist.” –The Coveteur
