A VERY FINE LINE

Elle (Canada) - - Style -

Coco Chanel once said that the best things in life are free, but she also wisely noted that “the sec­ond-best things are very, very ex­pen­sive.” Some of these very, very best things can now be found at the newly reno­vated Chanel bou­tique in Van­cou­ver. Lo­cated in the down­town Holt Ren­frew store, this 470-square-me­tre lux­u­ri­ous space car­ries shoes, hand­bags and Karl’s ready-to-wear de­signs. It’s also the first bou­tique in Canada to show­case pieces from the house’s watch and fine-jew­ellery col­lec­tions. The two pieces that drew the most en­vi­ous at­ten­tion at the open­ing in June were the $1.2-mil­lion Pé­tales de Camélia di­a­mond neck­lace and the $3-mil­lion Camélia Empierré— a stun­ner with its 12 ru­bies sur­rounded by pink and brown round-cut di­a­monds.
