Today I was lucky enough to be invited to an exclusive preview of the ‘Chanel at Harrods’ extravaganza that opens to the public tomorrow.
Chanel are the first brand to ever host such a ‘takeover’ at the super luxury department store.
Not only have they designed special window displays featuring Karl Lagerfeld’s most recent ready-to-wear collection, they have also created limited edition beauty and accessory collections, available while stocks last from the two pop-up boutique installations on the ground floor.
The limited edition ‘Knightsbridge’ makeup collection consists of three limited edition lipsticks, one gloss and a blusher. All have names inspired by Harrods and the surrounding area.
The three limited edition Rouge Allure Luminous Satin lipsticks (£24 each):
From top: Hyde Park, Belgravia, Kensington
The limited edition glossimer lipgloss in Chelsea (£20) is equally as eyecatching.
It has a glittery sprayover that looks stunning when you first open it but disappears after a couple of uses (probably for the best as less shimmer is always more flattering on the cheeks in my opinion!)
The collection is available now, exclusively from Harrods (and online at www.Harrods.com) while stocks last.
And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better…
After feasting my eyes on these beauties, we were then given an exclusive preview of Chanel’s ‘Une Promenade’. A mind-blowing installation of everything Chanel, that is open to the public for three weeks starting tomorrow (6th September 2011), housed on the 3rd floor.
The collection of rooms centre around a stunning indoor garden, designed with the glamorous S/S11 runway show in mind.
And the best thing of all? The giant sculpture of the 2.55 itself!
I didn’t get the chance to pick up one of those gorgeous blushers so may have to pop back… What do you think girls?
