The French luxury house CHANEL was founded by Coco Chanel in 1909 and is one of the most influential fashion houses of all time. Now headed by fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s classic pieces include the Chanel jacket, little black dress, the 2.55 quilted bag and Chanel No. 5 Eau de Parfum – all of which are just as relevant and coveted today as when they were first created.
From its earlier, wartime days of jersey fabric pieces, Chanel has become a leading high fashion, haute couture brand offering menswear, womenswear, coats, jackets, shoes, bags, jewellery, fragrances and cosmetics. These are brought to you in the form of three different stores, each with their own specialisation:
- CHANEL – for staple fashion pieces, ready-to-wear, leather goods, shoes, accessories and sunglasses
- CHANEL BEAUTÉ – the beauty line which sells their famous fragrances, makeup and skincare products
- CHANEL WATCHES AND FINE JEWELLERY – boutiques dedicated to the brand’s range of watches and jewellery pieces
