A Little Shopping Après-ski?

The sun has finally come out in Auckland but if you are a Chanel fan and also like to ski you might consider making your way to Courchevel in the French alps. The great house has established a 'temporary boutique' in the mountain resort replete with four ceramic Madmoiselle Chanel figures, each over two metres tall, outside. Inside it is a stripped down, neutral affair with plenty of concrete, light boxes and splashes of colour. The boutique will house Karl Lagerfeld's 2011/12 Cruise collection alongside the Chanel Spring/Summer 2012 collection. So if you are in the area, you could do worse than visit the Chanel's winter wonderland in Courchevel.
