French luxury house Chanel has unveiled its first boutique in Bahrain, in the city’s well-heeled Marassi Galleria mall.

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

There is also an area dedicated to the house’s watches and fine jewellery collections, including an exclusive selection of timepieces such as Première, J12 and BOY·FRIEND as well as fine jewellery creations including the iconic COCO CRUSH, N°5 and Camelia collections. In addition, a selection of Chanel’s high jewellery and haute horlogerie collections will also soon arrive at the new boutique. 

Alongside these collections, the house will also showcase its fragrance and beauty products, including the house’s fragrance, make-up and skincare ranges, such as the LES EXCLUSIFS de CHANEL, SUBLIMAGE, and 31 LE ROUGE lines. 

Upon entering this expansive and luminous boutique, visitors are immediately immersed in the world of accessories. Two dedicated salons showcase an array of iconic and novel handbags, complemented by a curated selection of shoes, costume jewellery, eyewear, scarves, and small leather goods. The journey unfolds into a generously spaced shoe department featuring elegant seating areas. 

Continuing the House’s enduring dedication to the arts, a tradition traced back to Mademoiselle Chanel, the boutique’s decor is further enhanced with an artwork by Alicja Kwade as well as a sculptural urn by Johan Creten. Additionally, the salon’s fitting rooms feature two captivating artworks by Alastair Gordon. 

The range of services extends to personalized one-on-one appointments, along with alteration, repair, and restoration services facilitated by the House’s dedicated centre in Dubai. Mall-provided valet parking adds a touch of convenience.
