France is Calling. Why not try one of these luxourious Day's Out
1. Chanel Uncovered in Paris.
Ever wondered what shaped Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel aspirations into becoming one of the most iconic fashion designer's of the World! Well this complete day will help shape that, as you follow in the magical footsteps of Coco to uncover the labyrinth of Paris High Society and fashion boutiques.
We will pick you up from the Le Maurice owned by the Dorchester Collection where you can either stay the night before or meet for a coffee before we embark on the insightful tour.
You will get to see the apartment where Coco Chanel spent much of her time entertaining the talented characters such as Giacometti, Stravinsky and Salvador Dali. The apartment was designed by the 'first lady of fashion' herself, and features black lacquered surfaces and suede sofa's created an inescapable air of enchantment. There is a breath-taking mirrored, spiral staircase of which, we learnt that Coco used to see the audience's reaction to her collection during the show.
You will get to see her mahogany desk, which is etched with the legacy of a million scratch marks to her hand-assembled Chinese screens, which enclosed the space, traces of Coco’s legacy remains mummified and hidden away in her eternally beautiful apartment. It never ceases to amaze us how behind the façade of the art-deco-influenced exterior, lies a perfectly preserved and ultra-luxurious piece of CHANEL history.
The lunch will nothing short of exquisite, with the surrounds of Champs Elysees in order to recharge the energy levels.
Once the plates have been cleared for lunch we will embark on a truly memorable trip through the fabulous Chanel flagship store in Avenue Montaigne. With a surface of 600 m² spread over two floors, the shop appears in a somptuous décor with opulence detailing in favour of gold leaves and crystal rocks, and will be selling the full range of Chanel product lines. American architect Peter Marino created an exclusive concept with the idea of boutique-presents-product in a theatrical form. The first floor is open to loyal customers who have access to private lounges, while the second half of the store has been transformed into an art gallery with artwork from twelve contemporary artists.
With our unique access to Chanel, you will be guided through the various season's products and feel free to peruse through at your leisure. What makes this extremely unique.
