The Bag: Chanel- Why I love Chanel
Founded 1909 till date, Chanel revolutionized fashion! High fashion (haute couture) and everyday fashion (prêt-à-porter) — by replacing structured-silhouettes, based upon the corset and the bodice, with garments that were functional and flattering to the woman’s figure.
Coco Chanel caters to women’s taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewellery (gemstone and bijouterie) of simple design that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. And Blackpearl’ being the innovative brand that we all know, to collaborate with Chanel will be Epic!
