Established by the revolutionary legend Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, the luxury fashion house has been a long-standing icon in the ever-evolving industry. Chanel is known for its simplistic elegant pieces that stand the test of time. Coco's signature women’s Chanel pieces such as tweed suit skirts and quilted handbags still remain as the centerpieces of the brand. However, another significant figure, Karl Lagerfeld, worked his magic onto the brand by adding personality to Chanel. Lagerfeld’s touch of edginess, humor, fantasy, sexiness and sophistication is obvious at each collection; every year, the fashion icon pushed the industry with his fusion of fantasy with timeless fashion pieces. With items like iconic women’s Chanel logo handbags, shoes and sunglasses to men’s Chanel bags, and watches, our online Chanel store features an exclusive collection of women’s Chanel & men’s Chanel pieces to choose from.

The History of Chanel
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel is the woman behind the prestigious brand. Coco Chanel was born in 1883 and learned to sew at a young age from nuns at the orphanage where she was raised. Just years later, the accomplished seamstress opened her first store in Paris where she became a hit for her jersey dresses. Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was destined to take part in the feminine revolution that was still developing at the time. With Coco’s work, modernized classic dresses and tweed outfits, like her famous little black dresses, replaced restrictive corsets. The 2.55 shoulder bag is another one of Coco Chanel’s legendary models that became wildly successful, as it was designed specifically for women on the go with an elongated strap to free up women’s hands.
In 1983, more than a decade after Coco Chanel’s death, fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld succeeded as the brand’s creative director. Lagerfeld established his flashy style while at the same time respecting Coco’s everlasting legacy. Several of his additions to Chanel include the iconic CC turnlock and the leather and chain straps on many of the brand’s handbags. It was under his direction when Chanel launched its first line of men’s & women’s watches as well. Several favorite collections of the couture house include the Boy Chanel collection, Deauville collection, and Matelasse collection.
