“Fashion changes, but style endures.” - Coco Chanel
Known for her trademark designs and perfumes, revered style icon and famed fashion designer Coco Chanel was born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel on August 19, 1883, in Saumur, France.
She transformed fashion with her revolutionary designs by introducing masculine colors and replacing the lavish, constricted, and structured clothes popular at the time with elegant, simple-line designs emphasizing comfort and function while still flattering to a woman’s figure.
Coco created the House of Chanel in 1910 when she opened a millinery shop in Paris. Soon after she launched a clothing boutique and offered a collection of sportswear which was an immediate success and firmly established the House of Chanel in France.
With the creation of her trademark “Chanel Suit” and “Little Black Dress”, the reputation of her fashion house grew throughout Europe and America.
In 1921 Coco unveiled her first fragrance and signature scent, Chanel No. 5., which is named after the number of the sample she liked best and is a timeless symbol of femininity.
In February 1955 Chanel launched the “2.55” quilted leather handbag which featured a gold color chain as a new style of shoulder strap that allowed the bag to be carried by hand or over the shoulder.
Chanel created her legendary two-tone shoe in beige with a contrasting black toe cap in 1957. This unique style produced a flattering effect by lengthening the leg and shortening the foot.
Coco was still designing at the time of her death, at the age of 87, on January 10, 1971, leaving behind a triumphant posthumous collection.
With the appointment of Karl Lagerfeld as artistic director and chief designer in 1983, Coco Chanel’s legend continues to thrive and prosper into the 21st century.
