A bespoke transitory boutique is housed at Suria KLCC as the Chanel boutique closed its doors in May, in preparation for its reopening in November. Situated not too far from its original fashion boutique, the ephemeral boutique is open from May 17th till November. This occasion marks Malaysia’s first stand-alone Chanel ephemeral boutique.
Installed in this new 400-square-metre pop-up space will be the Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection. This will be one of the series of four collections to be released in the transient space. This season, with aquatic tones, Karl Lagerfeld writes a story. Perfectly blending with the new decor, an iridescent rainbow palette, glistening gold and silver echoing the reflections of the sun and the moon on the water’s surface, hazy aqua prints in shades of blue and while, exuberant hues of greens and gentle pinks define the Spring/Summer silhouette. Along with the vibrant shades are mingling textures of tweed, leather, crushed and frayed lace, and pleated silk.
The burst of colors in the garments are starkly contrasted with the bold yet minimalistic backdrop of this new space. With polished concrete, muted grey shades envelope the walls, floors, and the asymmetrically sliced partitions. This mood is further fortified by hints of black and white, while mirrors and frosted glass partitions add to the spacious and light vibe. From the outside, passers-by can see everything through windows that offer a complete view into the open-plan space.
Customers will be welcomed, as soon as they step into the boutique, by the most iconic of Chanel accessories, the Boy CHANEL, CHANEL’s GABRIELLE bag and other sorts of novelties. Further inside, customers can feast their eyes on three concrete displays which frames the Ready-to-Wear collection. Monochromatics mannequins exhibit a rotation of looks that define the collection. The boutique, like always, instigates a feeling of comfort and ease, merited by the premier VIP dressing room and the bespoke furniture, tastefully scattered throughout the space.
This ephemeral boutique can be found at G18 and G19 Ground Floor, Suria KLCC.
