Chanel: a word synonymous with style, simplicity, elegance and a whopping big price tag. Though we all crave that quilted leather handbag or little black dress, not all of us would feel necessarily comfortable striding into a Chanel boutique, nor could we afford it. A happy, accessible medium is their cosmetics collection bringing that little bit of class and sophistication to your make-up bag. The latest addition to the Chanel empire is a pop-up shop in Covent Garden offering every item in their cosmetic arsenal, exclusive products and London’s first Chanel nail bar (£20 will get you a manicure and the price is redeemable on products in store). With professional makeup artists on hand and workshops, Karl Lagerfeld is here to help you smoulder this summer – that’s why this is our pick of the Time Out Hot List. Carly-Ann Clements
