Chanel Takes Over Harrods

Chanel: Une Promenade
Harrods in London has filled their 23 windows with a curated pop-up shop and installation celebrating the late designer Coco Chanel.  Featured is Karl Lagerfeld's Fall/Winter 2011 collection that was inspired by an "enchanted forest" fairytale theme.  Harrods stuck true to that concept by placing lifelike animals  (some even dressed in Chanel), flowers and leaves, a crazy mirrored wall, super-sized versions of 2011 pieces, feathered masks and mannequins standing on fluffy clouds.  Also shown is a preview of exclusive Chanel fine jewelry and watches and beauty products as well.  However, not only the windows were turned into a magical forest, three floors of Harrods is decorated and features all of Chanel's Fall/Winter 2011 collection.  The House of Chanel describes what is featured as, "enchanted bestiary, fabeled mise en scenes and a subtle layering of exquisitely refined fabrics".  On the third floor, Une Promenade (also the name of the installation) is an eight room installation showcasing milestones in Chanel's history.
