We arrived to the Decadestwo party, in celebration of their Chanel event, just a bit on the early side last night. We wanted to get an unencumbered, panoramic view of the offerings—you know, before the store filled up a well-heeled mob of ladies ooohing and aaahing over the merchandise.
It was like a visit to a beautiful museum, albeit one where you could touch everything. The store is unbelievably well stocked, both in terms of volume of merchandise (Chanel fills up the first room and spills over into the second) and its extensive, impeccable collection. Spanning the years from the late 90s to current, the collection offers every look imaginable. Yes, there are classic jackets, purses and dresses, but you'll probably find some nice surprises.
It's open to the public today. Judging from reports of how successful yesterday's shopping event was, we're guessing it will get nutty over there today. But be patient, be polite, and go see all the stunningness for yourself.
