CHOPARD BOUTIQUE THE DORCHESTER MAYFAIR LONDON
I visited a champagne reception hosted by the new Chopard boutique at the Dorchester Hotel. After visiting extraordinary Chopard pop-up boutique in Harrods I was looking forward to more! Well I certainly was not let down! There was the unique opportunity to try on selected Chopard pieces worn by actresses during the 2014 awards season, including at the recent BAFTAs 2014.
The favourite piece of the visit had to be the Chopard necklace as worn by Cate Blanchett for the ceremony. It’s a substantial sized piece that also epitomises light and elegance. Surprisingly for a company known for it’s classical pieces, Chopard also knows how to have fun! Excellent craftsmanship enables them to incorporate many unique movements i.e. birds heads and tails are movable as you can see on the video below. The next day we were greeted with a hand written card from the lovely Louka who is in charge of The Dorchester and Park Hyatt boutiques. One could say that both of the boutiques are managed with Egyptian charm and German precision.
The elegance of Jewellery naturally fits in with exclusive boutiques and five star hotels. We love discovering local and international brands while travelling in style. GEMOLOGUE is looking forward to visiting the Dorchester Hotel in LA, Hotel Bel-Air, which has just launched an exciting new jewellery boutique.
