Chanel: Purest luxury
“Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity. Luxury is a cotton coat, lined with silk or fur – but inside. One throws the coat on a chair, and the inner lining shows. Otherwise it doesn’t. Only the lady alone knows that she is wearing silk or fur. She does not need to tell or demonstrate it. That is luxury.”
Coco Chanel * 19. August 1883 in Saumur, Pays de la Loire; † 10. January 1971 in Paris)
Like no other, the name of Chanel stands for timeless elegance, purest luxury, and in our opinion some of the most beautiful luxury handbags in world history. Coco Chanel invented the utterly perfect 2.55 bag, which is until today one of the most desired handbags in the fashion sphere. Owning a Chanel Handbag in a lifetime means more than just having an expensive handbag: It is a luxury which a lady should indulge in.
Chanel: From hats to fashion label
Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel opened her first store in Paris in 1909. However, the history of this iconic fashion brand started with hats, not bags: The young seamstress Chanel turned the fashion industry upside down with her extraordinary designs of headwear.
This small hat shop eventually grew into one of the largest fashion empires the world has ever seen – and today, under the creative leadership of Karl Lagerfeld, it is successful like never before. From fashion over shoes, jewelry and, handbags up until cosmetics, Chanel offers pretty much everything a lady needs – and wants.
We have completely fallen for the magic of Chanel – and do so over and over again when new models arrive at our shop. Buy a Chanel handbag, and you buy the luxury that every woman deserves!
