A Private Invitation to the CHANEL World

The CHANEL boutique re-opening on November 19, 2009 was a spectacular production created by Claudia Ross of Cross Marketing PR. It was a truly CHANEL affaire, co-hosted by the always beautiful and impeccable team of Vanessa Getty and Samantha Traina.

The exquisite crowd dressed to the nines as tribute to the iconic fashion house and the legendary "Madame Coco Chanel" in beige, white, and black, accessorized with beautiful pearls, camellias, and beautiful jewelry. The exclusive guests enjoyed a spectacular night with a non-stop flow of Perrier-Jouet champagne, cocktails, and exquisite hors d'ouevres.

The newly redesigned boutique boasts entrances on both Maiden Line and Geary. The design is the work of New York architect and long time CHANEL collaborator Peter Marino. It is an expression of the CHANEL legacy. He has given the store a sense of detail and timeless style for which CHANEL is known. Guests will enjoy pleated silk paneling, custom-created, hand plastered walls, and an ivory cabuca stone floor. Walls and ceiling feature patterned plaster with gold leaf, a gold travertine floor, tweed inspired carpet, custom CHANEL tweed sofa in beige, white and black (of course!), custom slipper chairs in woven pink, beige and white fabric, and suspended lacquer shelves. The store has sections for Ready-to-Wear, Handbags, Costume Jewelry, Shoes, Watches and Fragrance and Beauty. In celebration of this exciting reopening, two looks from the cruise runway 2010, a special handbag and shoes, will be available exclusively in San Francisco.

Without any doubt, the CHANEL re-opening in San Francisco was one of the most spectacular productions of the year.
