If ever there was a match made in Parisan heaven then surely this is it - one of the most iconic fashion houses around teaming up with arguably the French capital's coolest boutique. Yes, that's right, next week Chanel and Colette are launching their new project - and just in time for Paris Fashion Week.
From Tuesday the two brands will join forces to open a pop-up boutique in a former garage on the Rue Saint Honore. It will stock special pieces from both, from Chanel bags customised by Colette's favourite artists and Karl Lagerfeld dolls, to Collete's compilation CD's.
And, certain to make it an essential pit-stop for the fashion pack, there will be a Chanel nail bar and cupcakes by Chez Bogato, plus a soundtrack provided by the man who puts together the catwalk playlists for the biggest labels around, Michel Gaubert.
The pop-up store will be at 336-340 Rue Saint Honore, Paris, and will be open from 1-10 March 2011.More
