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.
