COCO CHANEL (1909–1971)

My life didn’t please me, so I created my life.

The House of Chanel is known for the “little black dress”, the perfume No. 5 de Chanel, and the Chanel Suit. As a fashion designer, Coco Chanel catered to women’s taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewelry of simple design, that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. There is no question that Chanel was very successful, but it’s quite possible that she popularized many designs instead of inventing them. We may never know the truth details of her career, and since she outlived her competitors, there was no one to contradicts her claims.

Chanel skirts appear to be basic, uncomplicated garments, but in reality they’re very complex. Nothing is left to chance in either the construction or the fit. The skirts have many different styles, but the most popular of them is faux wrap.
