MOC: Chanel™ Store
Posted 13 April 2012 - 07:56 PM
Hi all, I don't know why but the name of Coco's high fashion brand seems to be a taboo here, it keeps changing to "sewage" whenever I type it... So please bare with the topic title for now...
Anyway, if you have been around at the Eurobricks Town page or following modular building MOCs on Brickshelf / Flickr a little over a year ago, you may recall a series of luxury brand modular mocs from me
I have been building various stuff / hard at work, and doesn’t really have the luxury for doing another modular. So this Chanel Store, a request from a friend after the original Champ Elysees / Rodeo Drive Project is closed, has been delayed for quite some time.
This is my fourth attempt at a corner modular and I am quite pleased with how it turns out (The 1st one is a disaster and if you are interested in the other 2, search “Hermes” and “Emporio Armani”). I really like the combination of white, black and pearl gold, which gives the model a simple and clean look, and I hope the turret at the corner would breathe some fresh air to other modular MOCs. Consistent with my older buildings, Chanel has only 2 storey although I can fit in 3. I am having a hard time finding merchandise and mannequins.
It feels great adding a new piece of jewel to a closed project, maybe I should do this annually? I hope you enjoy the pictures and please let me have your comments and criticisms!

It's probably the site's swear filter. Don't ask me why it's in there (ask Hinckley instead). I fixed your post and the thread title (just make sure you don't edit your post ).
This swear filter is interesting

The "bricks" surrounding the windows in the tower are in fact rows of 1x1 cheese slopes built horizontally, this bit requires some trial and error.
BTW, while the store is built the French way, I got inspired by a corner building at Calle de Alcalá in Madrid while playing Gran Turismo 5

You said you are having a hard time finding merchandise. Do you have a perfume counter? (I didn't see one in the picks)

Everything about this MOC is just stunning!
The pearl gold and white color scheme is so classy; perfect for Chanel.
The decorative use of pearl gold fish is just a hoot! What a brilliant idea.
I think that Friends' sets should have more accessories.
This is going to be a challenge because you need high end items. Do they make shoes or boots for regular minfigs? I just have Scala and possibly some Belville shoes. Ditto for jewelry.
Looking at this store makes me want to open the door (actually they have doormen), and march right in. Not that I would buy anything there. It is an interesting place to visit, but I prefer to shop in the Lego Store, Nordstrom or REI!
Can't wait for your next creation!

The other stuff are not really noteworthy
Re L@go, LEGO Train 12 Volts, Lego Guy Bri, Asper: Thanks! The logo is one of my favorite part of the building, of course it would be more true to the original if LEGO has thicker rubber bands, but that's the best I can have for now.
Re castor-troy: Thank you!
Re Hinckley: Thanks! Now let me try "Vinnies" or "stupid dead sheep shoes"
Re Legogal: Thanks for your compliments! I think I have robbed the Friends' beauty saloon of all its goodies, its headgear accessories don't really fit it. As for the boots, I have robbed a minifig of his legs (See the upper floor display shelf), poor fig
Re Redhead1982, Freddie: Thank you! I will make sure I do better next time!
