The double storey new Chanel boutique has added another feather in KL's cap and position as shopping haven!
THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS, FABULOUS AND FANTABULOUS FASHION FANTASY LABEL IS CHANEL AND IT HAS JUST RELOCATED FROM ONE DOMINANT LOCATION TO A BIGGER, BRIGHTER AND BETTER ONE AT THE NEW ANNEXE OF SURIA KLCC!
WITH A ROAD FRONTAGE SO THE WHOLE WORLD CAN SEE THE CHANEL NAME AND LOGO, THE NEW CHANEL BOUTIQUE IS A CLASS ACT WITH ENOUGH SPACE TO PLAY FOOTBALL INSIDE.
ITS CHANGING ROOM IS BIGGER THAN MY BATHROOM AND TOILET COMBINED AND THE NEW STORE HAS SEVERAL COSY ENCLOSURES SO YOU AND YOUR CRONIES CAN SIP TEA OR CHAMPAGNE WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR PLATINUM CARD TO CLEAR.
DESIGNED BY PETER MARINO, THE STORE BOASTS THE LATEST DESIGN AND DISPLAY ELEMENTS SUCH AS FULY DOLLED UP MANNEQUINS SITTING ON COUCHES AND SOFAS. CHANEL WAS THE FIRST TO COME UP WITH THIS STUNNINGLY EFFECTIVE YET SIMPLE IDEA TO THE CHAGRIN OF OTHER FAMOUS BRANDS WHICH ARE NOW RELUCTANT TO DO THE SAME AS EVERYONE WILL POINT AND SAY 'OH LOOK, THEY ARE COPYING CHANEL'!
Feel like a movie star as you walk on Chanel's beige carpet
The jewellery and watches department
Cool, calm, clean, composed and completely Chanel!
The comfy sofas are covered with the same fabrics used by Chanel in its outfits! What a brilliant idea!
A changing room with its own sitting room! A class act
You can use this as a bowling alley
THIS IS THE BENEFIT OF ALWAYS BEING THE FIRST AND AHEAD OF THE PACK YOU SEE. I HAVE BEEN WEARING SHIRTS, PANTS, BAGS AND SHOES WITH MY GORGEOUS FACE PAINTED ALL OVER THEM SO NOW IF SOMEONE ELSE DOES THE SAME, HE OR SHE WILL BE DOING A KEE HUA CHEE! DITTO FOR MY SHIRTS HAND SEWN WITH MULTI-HUED FEATHERS OR LAVISHED WITH COLOURFUL CRYSTALS AND BEADS THE SIZE OF PIGEON EGGS!
I HAVE BEEN AN ARDENT ADMIRER OF CHANEL FROM THE TIME I WAS IN SWADDLING CLOTHES TO NOW AND JUST AS WELL CHANEL DOES NOT HAVE MENSWEAR OR I WILL BE BANKRUPT BUYING THEM. ACTUALLY CHANEL DOES MAKE JACKET FOR MEN USING TWEEDS AND WITH THE POCKETS STYLED AFTER COCO CHANEL'S EPONYMOUS JACKETS BUT THESE ARE HARDLY SOLD. I ONLY SAW TOW HANGING FORLORNLY AT CHANEL FLAGSHIP STORE IN RUE CAMBON IN PARIS BEHIND THE RITZ HOTEL. THESE JACKETS DO NOT HAVE LAPELS AND ARE JUST MEN'S VERSION OF CHANEL'S MOST ICONIC AND UNMISTAKABLE BLAZER.
CHANEL unveils its new, relocated boutique in the Lot C annexe of Suria KLCC. Within the 4,810 sq feet retail space, doubled the size of the previous store, clients are greeted by Artistic Director Karl Lagerfeld's latest collections in a unique and immediately identifiable CHANEL universe.
Like all CHANEL boutiques worldwide, this new boutique has been designed by New York based architect Peter Marino. He has created a world that embodies luxury, elegance and modernity - three elements that represent the very essence of the brand.
This new boutique boasts the KLCC's longest and most impressive shopping facade stretching 100 feet in length and two storeys in height along Jalan P Ramlee, catching the eye with its iconic CHANEL logo. The new Chanel boutique is on the same row as Louis Vuitton and Tiffany and will have Cartier as its next door neighbour.
Clients will recognize another new, yet instantly familiar, expression of the CHANEL legacy. In keeping with the spirit of Karl Lagerfeld, who ensures the perpetual modernity of CHANEL by reinterpreting its fashion each season, Peter Marino has inventively adapted the brand’s icons throughout the boutique – all the while heightening the sense of detail, construction, and craftsmanship for which the brand is known.
This new CHANEL boutique is first and foremost a comfortable place, reminiscent of a residential space, where rooms flow seamlessly from one to the next. The harmonious design evokes a feeling of ease with clients, featuring a walk-through floor plan that provides clients a pleasant browsing experience between the different "salons": Ready-to-Wear, Accessories, Shoes, Watches and the Fine Jewelry collection.
An intimate and cosy atmosphere can be found in the Ready-to-Wear salons. Clients are invited to linger on the welcoming, custom made tweed sofas made from the same fabrics used for suits, jackets, pants and skirts. The latest CHANEL fashion shows are screened continuously on a large LCD screen. A specially designed VIP fitting room has been created for CHANEL's new space.
Clients are invited to travel into the world of CHANEL, where the design revolves around the emblematic colours of the House, with its white and beige marble floors and walls. Touches of gold balanced by the simple and pure lines of the design reflect Mademoiselle Chanel’s belief that “The most beautiful things are the simplest”.
Hmmm, I am NEVER simple so does that make me unbeautiful? Don't all answer at once!

Following Mademoiselle Chanel’s principle that “The elegance of clothing is in its freedom of movement”, an emblematic jacket hugs so comfortably it feels almost like a cardigan. Its exterior, in navy blue cotton tweed, is luxuriously coupled with matching silk lining that is smooth against the skin. Jewel-like metal buttons are recalled in a subtle silver thread weaving its way through the worked, bias-cut trim; a testament to the brand’s minute attention to detail. CHANEL’s famed impeccable tailoring is brought to this blazer style with three easy front pockets; a perfect jacket designed for free and active women to wear throughout Kuala Lumpur’s warm days and breezy tropical nights. JUST TEAM THIS BLAZER WITH ANYTHING, FROM T-SHIRT TO CAMISOLE TO BLOUSE OR BRA AND YOU ARE SET! iT COSTS AROUND RM 9,000.

The Pearl and Secret Garden bags are so irresistible at RM 10, 480 each
Only these three Pearl Bags are left and each has a golden plaque inside that reads 'MALAYSIA EXCLUSIVE'!
Two bags have been crafted in soft, quilted lambskin shimmering with a touch of gold. Continuing the tradition of CHANEL’s skilled leatherwork and iconic quilted design, they are each distinguished by their own unique touch. One is adorned with pearls, which are both incrusted into the leather in the shape of a “double C” on the closure, and also intermingle with chains and leather to make a multi-strand handle. The other features a tiny green ladybug on its rectangular lock, hinting at the colourful flowers, dragonflies and bees buzzing above in a jewelled bouquet on the flap of the bag.
As practical as they are beautiful, these limited edition creations bear the signature “MALAYSIA EXCLUSIVE” hidden inside the bag on a gold metal plaque, or on the label of the jacket. Three true masterpieces of CHANEL’s expertise, prioritising comfort and function whilst bringing a unique allure and sophistication to the House’s most privileged clients in Malaysia.
ONLY THE PEARL BAGS ARE LEFT AND COSTS OVER RM 12,000 EACH SO DON'T WASTE TIME AS THEY MAY BE GONE AS I AM TYPING THIS BUT YOU NEVER KNOW SO CALL THE STORE NOW.
