In one of my articles I told you about the brand Dolce & Gabbana. Today I want to continue to introduce you with the most successful fashion houses in the world. And my choice fell on the brand, which, in fact, created a fashion, such as Chanel.
Because its founder Coco Chanel decades ago laid the permanent tradition of elegance beyond the influence of time. Coco radically refused to follow the trends of that time, abandoning the suffocating corsets, long full skirts, extravagant hats and fancy jewelry.
Madame Chanel introduced simple, strict, clear lines that emphasize the advantages and hide figure flaws. Therefore, the main characteristic of the brand – simplicity and convenience!
Today the brand is headed by German designer Karl Lagerfeld. By the way, I believe that now Lagerfeld is, in fact, also a fashion brand. The bold designer has made a name for himself long time ago.
That’s what Lagerfeld said about Chanel: “I juggle with what you know and what you don’t know about it. I didn’t want to believe anything of what she believed, but I believed in her!”.
Distinctive features of Chanel style:
- The figure “5”, “19”, trefoil, wheat, lion, tortoise, sun and the comet are the main symbols of Chanel, which were transformed into the composition of Chanel No. 19 and Chanel No. 5″;
- At the time, Gabrielle Chanel invented the handbag with a shoulder strap, which freed women’s hands. And then replaced the strap with gilded chain bag 2.55.
- Fashion changes but she is still popular — bag-chameleon, thrown over the shoulder as a symbol of the brand Chanel. February 1955: bag, named “2.55” for the date of its birth, born in the workshops of Chanel
- Chain — one of the incarnations of the style and personality of Chanel, simple elegance which allows only a single whim: an abundance of jewelry and necklaces.
- Pearl jewelry by Chanel – another recognizable part of her style.
- Brooch-Camellia Chanel reappears from season to season, always staying true to the spirit of Mademoiselle.
- Black and white in the style of Chanel.
To be honest, about Chanel I can talk for hours because it`s really hard put into words how incredible this brand is. So girls, more Chanel in your life 😉
