After months of waiting in anticipation, eager fans of CHANEL can finally visit CHANEL’s newly renovated boutique at Suria KLCC Mall, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Designed by New York-based architect Peter Marino, the new two-storey space debuts a total floor area of more than 5,000 square meters that encapsulates the heart and aesthetic codes of the House. The swanky and elegant new boutique draws inspiration from Gabrielle Chanel’s Parisian apartment with touches of timeless modernity that speaks to the ethos and soul of CHANEL.
Upon entering the boutique on the ground floor, clients are immediately welcomed by a spacious and bright gallery which transitions into various rooms showcasing a selection of Karl Lagerfeld’s latest creations comprising of Ready-to-Wear, accessories, shoes and handbags such as the 2.55, 11.12, Boy CHANEL, CHANEL’s Gabrielle and the newly introduced CHANEL 31 bag.
In addition, guests will be excited to discover a selection of Watches and Fine Jewellery pieces in a dedicated space. Indulge yourself in a myriad of guilty pleasures including CODE COCO, J12, Première, BOY∙FRIEND watch and pieces from the Coco Crush Fine Jewellery collection. For fragrance devotees, you’ll be pleased to know that fragrances such as N°5 or LES EXCLUSIFS DE CHANEL will also be displayed throughout the boutique.
If you fancy yourself something a little more indulgent and exclusive, head upstairs through a grand staircase to a private salon dedicated to Ready-to-Wear pieces. On your way up, you will be treated to a marvelous depiction of Gabrielle Chanel’s profile by Brazilian designer Vik Muniz entitled “Chanel, Pictures of Diamonds”. The private salon is a delight to behold, decorated with cosy tweed sofas and hand-woven carpets that reflect a warm and intimate atmosphere; and artfully finished by a golden sculpture entitled “Concave” by the French artist Eric Baudart. To ensure privacy and provide the ultimate level of service to CHANEL clients, the first floor may be closed off entirely and has its own entrance for a swift and seamless exit from the boutique.
The exceptional setting of CHANEL’s new boutique is a dedicated reflection of the brand’s creativity and commitment towards having the best customer experience in-store. So head over to KLCC and immerse yourself in an unforgettable shopping experience!
