Chanel's window takeover at Harrods

Chanel's window takeover at Harrods

Have any plans today? Well, whether you do or don’t, do yourself a BIG beauty favour and head over to Harrods immediately! If you haven’t heard the news already, you’ll know what we are talking about the minute you see the shop’s windows.

Karl Lagerfeld of Chanel has done what no other designer has been able to do in Harrods history and has taken over all 23 of Harrods’ windows with displays inspired by Chanel’s recent Autumn/Winter 2011 show. The theme of the windows is “Enchanted Forest” and it’s only a small part of the huge Chanel invasion that has taken place at the world-famous department store.

On the third floor you’ll step into Chanel’s “Une Promenade,” an eight-room installation depicting major milestones in Chanel’s history. You’ll encounter the Camellia Room, which pays homage to Coco Chanel’s favorite flower; Room 54, which is named after the year in which Coco created that famous Chanel tweed; the Haute Couture room, which gives visitors at glimse at the process of receiving an original piece of Chanel couture; the Nursery room which is pretty much a life-sized doll house; the Chanel No. 5 room, which honors the eponymous fragrance; a room mimicking Karl Lagerfeld’s own personal library, and the 2.55 room (named after the 2.55 bag that was created in 1955 and has become Chanel’s most famous handbag). In this room you’ll find a giant replica of the classic bag that’s so big you can walk through it.

If all of that doesn’t give you a good enough reason to leave for Harrods ASAP, then listen to what’s in store for you on the ground floor level. Here you’ll find a pop-up beauty boutique containing a limited edition makeup collection that Chanel has designed exclusively for Harrods.
