In the States, tomorrow is known as the Black Friday of travel, but in Shanghai it'll simply be the day their flagship Chanel boutique opens. With an interior by Peter Marino (of course), the Chanel will open inside the city's new Peninsula Hotel. It will be based on the design of Coco Chanel's apartment and Karl Lagerfeld has a few limited-edition items for sale just for the opening: "These include a classic quilted flap handbag with an inside signature "Shanghai Karl Lagerfeld", sling-back heels with a metallic CC logo, various items of clothing including a tweed jacket and skirt with gold trim."
