For the past century the luxury house of Chanel has been creating timeless designs that are still very much revered in today’s modern world.
Think of the trademark suits and little black dresses, perfume No. 5 de Chanel, the strands of pearls and of course the iconic Chanel bags with the quilted leather and interlocking C’s. They have all stood the test of time and are more popular nowadays than at than early in the 20th century.
Few brands can stand such a test, so what makes Chanel so different? Coco herself became a much revered style icon known for her simple yet sophisticated outfits paired with great accessories and as Chanel once said,“luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
What is apparent is that famous people, singers, actresses, IT girls, reality TV stars, authors, fashion models and strong role models all love, really love Chanel. The Chanel brand has been personified by Inès de La Fressange, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Anna Mouglalis, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley and Marilyn Monroe to name just a few.
And although this diverse group of people are all very different in style and stature one thing is for sure, the Chanel bags they wear all look superb. It takes a very iconic bag to look as good on such a range of people but Chanel have certainly managed it.
With avid fans from Rhianna to Melanie Gry Melanie Griffith lets take a look and see who likes what and who wears Chanel well.
