Chanel Unveils Its Newly Designed 57th Street Flagship

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.
