Welcome, Chanel

Casa Tua has brought a touch of Dallas and Paris to Aspen this week with a pop-up Chanel shop staged in its upstairs private club. Showcasing the Wild West-inspired Metiers d’Art Paris-Dallas 2013/14 collection designed by Karl Lagerfeld, the transformed space resembles that of a modern-day saloon. Mannequins are outfitted in Western wear, neon signs feature the boutique’s custom logo composed of the brand’s signature locked C’s combined with a lone star, and American and French flags are draped as decor. On the racks are snappy cocktail dresses, loose suit jackets, lofty knits, capes and ponchos alongside must-have handbags and other accessories.

On Thursday the haute couturier celebrated the opening of its first ephemeral boutique in the U.S. with a private cocktail party followed by a dinner. Dressed in stylish summer apparel, guests browsed the collection, enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres along with lounge beats by British DJ Zen Freeman and a set from Dallas folk band, The O’s. Chanel Inc. Fashion Division President Barbara Cirkva welcomed a host of VIPs, including Jen Brill, Tennessee Thomas, Elisabeth von Thurn und Taxis, Laura Love, Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, Harley Viera Newton and Leigh Lezark, all dressed from head to toe in Chanel.

The boutique is now open to the public until July 6.
