NEW YORK — Chanel will unveil its new shop-in-shop concept —with a twist — Monday at Marshall Field’s State Street store in Chicago.
While Chanel is also currently rolling out the new concept to Hecht’s at the Fair Oaks Mall in Fairfax, Va., and Belk’s in Charlotte, N.C.’s Southpark, the Field’s door marks the first shop-in-shop with a window presence, noted Jean Hoehn Zimmerman, executive vice president of sales and marketing, beauté and fragrance, for Chanel.
"Chanel is going for a global look at select U.S. counters, which emulates what Chanel does in Asia and Europe," Hoehn Zimmerman said. "It involves a balance of black and white with patterns and visuals. Hecht’s, Belk’s and Marshall Field’s are the first stores to introduce this Euro-style mega installation, which will also roll out in 2003 to additional doors."
According to Dave Steiner, divisional merchandise manager for cosmetics and fragrances at Marshall Field’s, the new Chanel shop and its concept "enhance Marshall Field’s commitment to provide an unforgettable beauty-shopping experience for our guests."
The semienclosed space is designed for maximum visual impact, he noted. The space features new French components with bold, contrasting black-and-white fixtures that highlight the entire Chanel line. As well, the shop will have a window presence on the exterior wall of Washington Boulevard, with men’s and women’s fragrance outposts to be included in the space.
The shop-in-shop marks the finishing touch for Field’s newly redesigned beauty concept at State Street. The floor, which opened in late September, features off-the-floor consultation areas, a separate fragrance area and a bright selling space, among other attributes.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.

As one of the most recognizable models in the world, Christy Turlington Burns has an insider’s view of the fashion industry and the allegations of sexual harassment swirling around it. “I can say that harassment and mistreatment have always been widely known and tolerated in the industry. The industry is surrounded by predators who thrive on the constant rejection and loneliness so many of us have experiences at some point in our careers,” Turlington told WWD, along with her suggestions for how the modeling world should protect younger women and men.

24-year-old Jean Prounis is redefining the rules of jewelry. Formerly a studio assistant to Jemima Kirke and a design apprentice at Ghuran, she focuses on handcrafted subtleties and ancient goldsmithing techniques. “There was a really sterile feel in the environment and I wanted to have jewelry with character that shapes how you wear it everyday,” Prounis said. Each piece is hand made in New York, either by Prounis or three other jewelers in the district. #wwdfashion
