Speaking of Chanel, NYC-based Nitrolicious took a trip to LA and toured the Chanel Robertson boutique and snapped ample pics. From Nitrolicious: "Swarms of people were there to shop, there was a live DJ and champagne were served to customers. The store is fab, I loved the giant quilted bag and giant tweed jacket on the second floor and there was a carousel decked with giant pearls and camellias next to the entrance just like Chanel Fall ‘08 RTW runway show—super hot! There’s also an outdoor lounge on the first and second floor where you can sit and relax, how chill is that?" Clearly, the fashion house's goal to appeal to the younger set is working.
