So, on my day off last week I paid the new Chanel Boutique on Bond Street a visit.
It opened recently and even though I work around the corner I still haven't checked it out.
I'm a massive fan of the latest collection in store at the moment - Metiers d'Art.
As a half Scot it is very exciting to see a collection inspired by and resourced in my local area.
My parents have lived in the the Scottish Borders for roughly 13 years now and more recently my dad has been helping maintain the grounds of the estate which is owned by Stella Tenants family (who is the Scottish model who opened the show for this collection)
As far as I'm aware, Stella even tried to convince Karl Lagerfeld to host the show at her families home - The Glen.
Sadly it lost out to Linlithgow Palace instead!
Anyway, going back to the boutique...when you first walk in you can't help but notice the giant pearls which create a sculpture from the ground floor up to the ceiling of the top floor.
This creation was designed by an Artist called Jean Michel Otheroniel and there is an article on him and his work in the latest Luxure Magazine - easy reading with a G&T at Aqua!
My eyes, unsurprisingly, were far more distracted by a tweed Boy bag which I will be crushing on for a while now!
