We read an interesting comment from star architect Peter Marino at the extraordinary and extravagant Chanel haute couture show last week (featuring the gold lion shrine!). Marino mentioned Chanel is planning to open a large boutique in Beirut, stating “that’s where it’s all happening right now.”
It seems we will have to change our recent descriptions of building sites looking like ‘Beirut on a bad day”, as things are clearly looking up for this once thriving city. Previously a coveted destination for the rich and the famous it seems to be emerging from the rubble and perhaps going back to its glory days as a true luxury destination.
