Chanel Opens Today in West Hollywood!!! (on Robertson)
Yes it is
With Chanel’s arrival on Robertson, the street’s days as a quaint indie boutique district are officially over. (D&G and Ralph Lauren are poised to open soon.) But it’s still the row du jour for young starlets and wannabes looking to get “caught” by the paparazzi. Chanel denies that the new outpost is an attempt to appeal to a younger crowd, but the trendy location and smaller scope do suggest otherwise.
The 5,395-square-foot, two-story boutique includes a huge landscaped courtyard bordering the main floor. Up the polished black concrete staircase is a smaller space featuring pieces from the ready-to-wear collection with sliding glass doors opening onto a terrace. As on Rodeo, the color scheme is classic Chanel black and white, and original artwork was commissioned — this time from Robert Greene, who created two oil works on vellum, collaged onto aluminum panels.
