CHANEL To Add Its Starpower To Robertson Blvd.

No, not me, the CHANEL brand, lol!  Although my "star power" can be pretty strong too.. According to Women's Wear Daily, CHANEL will be the newest store added to "see and be seen" Robertson Blvd. in Los Angeles.  And personally, I think it's a smart gangster move for the CHANEL brand:
Los Angeles - CHANEL is changing the game on Robertson Blvd.
The fashion house will unveil a new store concept this month housing a smaller, more tightly focused selection of products geared to a more trend-conscious set.  CHANEL will be the first designer megabrand on the two-block stretch between Third Street and Beverly Blvd., and will be joined on Robertson by Dolce & Gabbana's D&G concept and Ralph Lauren.

  1. As if this is a good thing. I see nothing in this article regarding the uphill battle the residents of this neighborhood have been fighting for a year and 1/2 against the construction company building this place (and the new Ralph Lauren 2 doors down), and all the laws they're breaking.
    For over a year, I (along w/ every neighbor on this street, who share an alleyway with Robertson) have been woken up at 5am to the sound of drills, cranes, cement trucks, hammering, drilling, etc...and the noise does not cease till 11pm or later, leaving a mere 6 hours of quiet time for residents. (LA law dictates no construction is allowed between 7pm and 7am, and NONE on Sundays).
    Every time a neighbor calls the cops, nothing happens. I wonder how many bribes Chanel and Ralph Lauren have paid out to run illegal building sites for over a year at the expense of an entire neighborhood?
