Born in the 1920’s, Chanel is the French fashion house started by legendary Parisian style icon, Coco Chanel. Chanel customers at the Soho location are encouraged to interact and touch the fabrics, the signature lambskin quilted handbag still being a tactile and in-demand favorite. Serious shoppers are advised to call ahead and book a personal shopper to assist in navigating the racks of intricate tweed, fine jewelry, sunglasses and elegant shoes. The Soho store indulges in carrying some of Chanel’s funkier items, though the classics are still available for purchase, all adorned with the signature “CC” logo.
