Around the age of 18, Coco became interested in fashion. It all really started in 1909. Eventually she opened more shops, where she also started making clothes.
The House of Chanel was officially born. Coco’s designs always were simple, yet elegant. Coco Chanel was different from all other designers in the 19th century, since this was a time full of luxurious, over-designed, and constrictive clothes.
Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel passed away in 1971, but Chanel definitely lives forever.
Karl Lagerfeld was appointed “artistic director” in 1983. His visions definitely aligned with Coco’s. After working at Chanel for over 30 years, Karl Lagerfeld passed away in February 2019. Another legend was born.
Every year we’re still blessed with new iconic items, and we’re certain that this will stay this way in the future.
