In the 1937 Horst photo of Coco Chanel in her Paris apartment, the designer is reclining on a beige satin sofa, her face turned away from the camera but her jewelry pointed straight at it. This turned out to be a prophetic image: For the new Chanel Fine Jewelry stores, architect Peter Marino used reimagined versions of her lacquer panels, ebony consoles, and Goossens chandeliers. A few items, like the antique bronze deer sculpture by Lalanne, seem airlifted straight from the Rue Cambon. The first shop has just been unveiled in Hong Kong. At Prince's Building, Central; 852/2810-0978
