We highlight the most drool-worthy pieces from Chanel's Métiers d'art pop-up at Melbourne's Marais boutique which opened this week

Let's be clear: an entire floor dripping with brand-new Chanel accessories, ready-to-wear and Gabrielle bags is never really a hard sell. So when it came to opening Chanel's #ParisCosmopolite pop-up at Melbourne's Marais boutique on Wednesday evening, we were all ears. Awakening a slice of the Ritz Paris magic to Melbourne's Bourke St was no simple task, but Chanel managed to bring the Métiers d'art collection to life through the use of hotel Ritz-inspired wallpaper and opulent furnishings such as navy velvet sofas, indigo cabinetry and polished brass finishes - all designed to mirror the legendary Place Vendôme space. As the setting for this year's Paris Cosmopolite 2016/17 Métiers d'art show, it was a fitting tribute to the house's founder Gabrielle Chanel, a longtime fan of the hotel.

Featuring key pieces from the Paris Cosmopolite ready-to-wear collection, guests were invited to get up close with a dazzling array of Chanel Gabrielle bags, iconic tweed jackets, glittering minaudiere and layers of bold and decadent jewellery. To celebrate the opening, Chanel hosted a cocktail party at the store, followed by a Parisian-style dinatoire next door which culminated with a rooftop performance by The Preatures.
