First Look Inside Chanel’s New Bond Street Flagship

This morning I had the immense pleasure of being the very first person to walk through the doors of the impressive newly-opened flagship Chanel maison on Bond Street. 18 months in the making, the boutique is an impressive 12.600 square foot heaven over 3 floors where Chanel lovers (like myself!) can enjoy every aspect of the iconic French fashion house.
