Luxury powerhouse Chanel unveiled its redesigned 57th Street flagship store, now the largest US Chanel boutique. Superstar architect Peter Marino is behind the new look, which features a facade of white printed glass panels framed by a black metal grid which the brand says "exudes the spirit of Chanel referencing the brand's color palette while presenting an abstraction of its emblematic tweed." The store, which now has 5 full floors or retail space, also features a 60-feet tall Jean-Michel Othoniel's sculpture which evokes a string of pearls, one of the signature tropes of Chanel.
The space features artwork by such world-renowned artists as Robert Mapplethorpe, Olafur Eliasson and Jenny Holzer. The Cruise 2018/2019 collection is in store now and features a capsule of exclusive products created to celebrate the New York flagship including a 2.55 bag and wallet adorned with New York City-inspired charms.
