“Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” - 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.
The House of Chanel originated in 1910 when Coco opened a millinery shop in Paris. Soon after she offered a collection of sportswear in a new boutique which was an immediate success establishing the House of Chanel in France.
With the creation of her trademark “Chanel Suit” and “Little Black Dress”, the reputation of her fashion house continued to grow and her clothing became popular throughout Europe and America.
Coco’s first fragrance and signature scent, Chanel No. 5, was unveiled in 1921. Created by Ernest Beaux, it’s named after the number of the sample Coco 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 simultaneously lengthening the leg and shortening the foot.
She 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.
