Decked in diamonds and fantasy tweeds, a glittering celebrity crowd lit up Chanel’s new jewel-box boutique.
The French house celebrated the opening today of its first standalone watch and fine jewelry flagship in the U.S. with a decadent cocktail party and dinner for dozens, followed by a surprise performance by Grammy-nominated artist Gracie Abrams. Chanel-clad artists including America Ferrera, Carey Mulligan, Kerry Washington, Katie Holmes, Michelle Williams, Natasha Lyonne, Lucy Boynton and Kelsey Asbille dazzled in countless carats of Coco Crush, Camélia, Comète Couture, Ruban and Eternal N°5 bijoux.
Located at 730 Fifth Ave. in the Crown Building, an iconic Beaux-Arts skyscraper, the boutique is steps from the Plaza Hotel and Central Park. Its interiors are designed by architect Peter Marino, a longtime Chanel collaborator, with nods to founder Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel and her storied Paris apartment.
