Wearing a Chanel is more than just wearing fashionable jewelries or designer clothes. It is wearing fashion and celebrating style, not in grandeur, but in simple yet self-assured poise. She becomes a Chanel lady who wears one, declaring to the world her confidence in stylish yet simple flair. She becomes yet another link to the Chanel saga, the brand whose haute-couture and jewelry fashion trace their roots on a youthful girl in provincial France. Gabrielle “Coco” Bonheur Chanel built her signature around simple yet elegant dresses, accentuated by streamlined jewelry that contradicted the overtly dressed and opulent 19th century. Her graceful confident approach to taste is evident in Chanel’s top signatures, notably its little black dresses, perfume No. 5 de Chanel, and the Chanel Suit that would build the House of Chanel as of one of the world’s most admired fashion icons. Top models and celebrities, who exude their own self-assured aura, found it natural to absorb the Chanel elegant confidence, with personalities including Marilyn Monroe, Anna Mouglalis, Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis, and Audrey Tautou among Chanel admirers. Today, whether it is in accessories, designer clothes, ready-to-wear, jewels, eyewear, and more, a Chanel inspires. No less.
