“South Coast Plaza and Chopard have shared a long and successful history,” said Henry Segerstrom, Managing Partner of C.J. Segerstrom & Sons. “Chopard’s commitment to excellence transcends the brand and extends into the arts and philanthropic arenas as well. I am so grateful not only to have Chopard atvSouth Coast Plaza, but for their continued support with these endeavors.”
Every detail of the new boutique is the vision of Chopard Co-President and creative heartbeat, Caroline Scheufele. Renowned architect Thierry W. Despont carried out the boutique commission with unprecedented impact by using state-of-the-art technology. Based on his idea that Chopard represents a blend of century-old family tradition and high-tech creations, he modeled the new boutique as an eco-friendly spectacular where the drama of diamonds and the fine art of watch making can be experienced by Southern California clientele.
Noted Caroline Scheufele, “In 2007, I asked architect Thierry Despont to create a new design
for the Chopard boutiques, beginning with our flagship store on Madison Avenue. We worked very closely
on the concept in order to keep the atmosphere of our boutiques warm and homey with luxurious and
sensuous fabrics, welcoming wooden floors, wood panelling and, often, a fireplace. When our clients
enter a Chopard Boutique, I want them to feel as if they were entering a refined and gracious home.”
All of the furnishings, including tables, lighting and vitrines were created and developed especially for Chopard. Defined areas for high jewelry, high-end watches and accessory collections allow for both
private and casual browsing. Also, a welcoming in-house customer service team is available to cater to a client’s every need.
Scheufele added, “The United States is a very important market for Chopard. I am very pleased to reopen our Costa Mesa Boutique, the first on the West Coast bearing the new design.”
The newly renovated and expanded boutique brings a tradition of elegance to South Coast Plaza – color
and light shine through every corner, emulating the style and sophistication of the Southern California
community that is so graciously welcoming Chopard.
