Chanel has reopened its store at South Coast Plaza Mall, in Orange County, CA adding 2000 sqf to the existing 7.000 sft., within proximity of Tiffany’s and Nordstrom. The new revamped Chanel store, designed by one of best interior designers nowadays, Peter Marino, features the complete range of Chanel products, with dedicated spaces (”salons”) to ready to wear, accessories and shoes.

Some of the salons are adorned with hand-made gold woven material designed especially for the boutique. For the stunning confection, Marino chose a glamorous palette of gold, black, and rosy pink, with bespoke upholstery that riffs on classic Chanel tweeds.
At the entry, shoppers are greeted with the scintillating swirls of wall panels painted by Nancy Lorenz. The watch and fine jewelry area is similarly bedazzled, displaying beaded walls, golden silk curtains, and rock-crystal screens by French designer Christophe Côme.

A gilded Maison d’Art Goossens chandelier and vintage sunburst mirror shimmer among the shoes. And a pair of minimalist white chairs and a cocktail table, all by French artist Ingrid Donat, add a moment of modernism near the handbags. The effect? A clothing boutique where the furnishings truly rival the fashion.
