In terms luxe materials, from the tweeds in the Fall/Winter 2015/16 line, to Karl Lagerfeld’s leather gloves, CHANEL seems almost synonymous with the concept of glamorous luxury. But luxury, as in, relaxation? That’s more of a stretch.
But according to Harper’s Bazaar and WWD, indulgers in the French fashion house will now be able to treat themselves as well as they treat their CHANEL handbags, as they are pairing with the Ritz to open their first spa.
The five-star Ritz Paris, which was recently renovated and is set to reopen later this year, will be teaming with the fashion house to the stars to open “Chanel Au Ritz Paris” by “year end”, and will reportedly focus primarily on skincare.
Although it is unclear whether or not this will be a standalone shop or one of many to come, the choice to start at this hotel seems an appropriate way to honor both the hotel and the late designer and brand’s namesake, Coco Chanel. The Parisian hotel served as the home base for Coco Chanel for 34 years starting in the early 1930s, and the late designer has been honored with a suite in her name. Looks like the perfect fit.
