Today, I’m celebrating one of my favourite style icons of all time, Coco Chanel. I am honoured to collaborate with the House of Chanel, an iconic French fashion company which changed the way how women dress all around the world.
Chanel style is classy, chic, effortless and embodies the beauty of simplicity and femininity. One of the things that makes Coco Chanel’s style so special, is that many of her clothes are still considered modern and still fashionable today.
In February 1955, Coco Chanel created the 2.55 Flap Bag and history was made. The Chanel 2.55 Flap signified fashion liberation: it was the first bag made for women to come with a shoulder strap, freeing them from the constraints of the impractical clutch. Rebellious and controversial, this Chanel handbag was a revelation, and women were immediately drawn in.
Chanel handbags are pricey and owning one is a big investment. If you’re looking for that Chanel aesthetic, go for a leather quilted handbag – lamb or caviar. Some classic shapes are the square and rectangle shape with top handles or cross body style convertible straps.
