Considered as a true pioneer of the “avant-garde”, Gabrielle Chanel, a.k.a Coco, launched her label in 1910. She opened her first store at 21 Rue Cambon in Paris.
With her androgynous style, the brand grew in popularity and set trends while remaining true to its core principles. Chanel N°5 perfume, the 2.55 bag and the “little black dress” have remained iconic designs that reflect Coco Chanel’s own life, enjoying enormous success in the 1920s.
A passionate jewelry enthusiast, Gabrielle Chanel went from creating costume jewelry to launching a designer jewelry range, with her first collection being known as “Diamond jewels.”
During the Second World War, Coco was forced into exile in Switzerland, and the luxury designer label reopened for business in 1954. Coco passed away in 1971, while Karl Lagerfeld took the helm in 1983. Since then, the brand has moved into watches and accessories.
The women who have been famous for wearing Chanel Nº5 include legends such as Marilyn Monroe, Vanessa Paradis, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley or even Blake Lively.
