Chanel Will Open its First Spa at Hotel Ritz Paris
The famous luxury brand Chanel is set to open its first spa at Hotel Ritz Paris.
Anyone can say that no other hotel in the city has so much glamour and history attached than the Ritz Paris. So there could be no better choice for the location of Chanel’s new spa.
When the French fashion house announced the opening of “Chanel au Ritz Paris” everyone was so happy.
The spa is set to open at the end of the year along with the hotel which has been closed for renovations since 2012.
Due to re-open later this year, the Ritz Paris is the perfect place to house this particularly special beauty sanctuary since it has a long history with the fashion house.
When the renovations are complete, the hotel will also include a new Coco Chanel suite inspired by the one she originally occupied. It is known that Chanel has had very strong ties with the Place Vendôme hotel since she was its resident for 34 years.
About the treatment menu is not much yet known, but one can only imagine the range of products and the signature treatments that would be offered in there.
And what better city to open a spa at other than Paris, the city of romance, shopping, amazing food, elegant architecture.
In a statement from Chanel,
“The story linking Chanel and the Ritz Paris would not be complete without the opening of a new Coco Chanel suite inspired by the one she originally occupied and by the decor she loved so much,”
Chanel confirmed to WWD that the storied fashion house will open “Chanel au Ritz Paris” — a spa dedicated to its skin care — in the city’s Ritz Club by the end of 2015.
No details have been revealed about the Ritz Paris spa’s opening date.
“The strong bond that unites Chanel and the Ritz Paris was initiated by Mademoiselle Chanel who lived 34 years at the Ritz. Located in the Ritz Club, ‘Chanel au Ritz Paris’ will provide women with a unique sensorial and customized experience,” the brand said in a statement, according to The Cut.
According to WWD, the shape of the Chanel No. 5 bottle was reportedly inspired by the arrangement of buildings on the Place Vendôme, where the Ritz sits in a prime corner location.
Many fashion shows have been held at the Ritz Paris’ basement pool. The fashion brand also held many runway shows there between 1990 and 2004, including Gianni Versace’s last runway show in 1997.
“It is with tremendous emotion that I return to the Ritz where I shared so many special moments with my brother,” Donatella Versace told WWD in April 2012.
“The closing of the Ritz Paris for two years represents the end of an era but also the beginning of a new one, so to be able to show Atelier Versace there one last time will be a memorable milestone,” she said.
