CHANEL Unveils Its First Boutique in Bahrain’s Marassi Galleria Mall

On March 7th, 2024, CHANEL opened its first boutique in Bahrain, in the Marassi Galleria mall, showcasing Fashion, Watches & Fine Jewelry, and Fragrance & Beauty.

The highly anticipated boutique, spanning 700 square meters on the mall’s first floor, is home to the latest CHANEL Ready-to-Wear collections by Creative Director Virginie Viard, as well as bags, shoes, eyewear and accessories.

An area dedicated to Watches and Fine Jewelry creations presents an exclusive selection of timepieces as well as Fine Jewelry creations. In addition, a selection of High Jewelry and Haute Horlogerie is presented.

Accessible via a dedicated entrance, an adjacent CHANEL Fragrance & Beauty boutique presents the House’s fragrance, make-up and skincare ranges. A lounge area invites lingering, with a private beauty room also available for testing the make-up.

In this project, the New York-based architect and long-term collaborator, Peter Marino, reinterprets House codes for a renewed perspective on the timeless modernity and allure of CHANEL. The boutique's striking façade integrates contrasting black marble, white stone, and mirrors symbolizing its three divisions, while the sophisticated black and white decor exudes a subtle Art Deco ambiance, enriched by opulent antiqued gold accents.

This new CHANEL boutique seamlessly blends elegance with a contemporary sensibility, paying homage to the House's rich history. It promises clients an unforgettable shopping experience within Bahrain’s most prestigious mall.
