When it comes to haute couture and luxury goods, there are few brands that can compete with the legacy that is Chanel. Founded in 1909 by the famous Coco Chanel, the brand has remained a favorite among casual shoppers and A-list celebrities alike.
The Chanel umbrella is far-reaching, including everything from hand-beaded gowns to quilted handbags, earrings and even perfume (Chanel No.5 is a classic hit).
Shopping for Handbags
The Chanel Quilted Maxi bag is perhaps one of the most popular, and while it boasts a serious price tag and, at times, a long wait list depending on the particular style or color you want, it’s absolutely gorgeous. But there are a lot of beautiful goods to carry besides the better-known Quilted Maxi. Browse sleek wallets, change purses and buttery soft lambskin bags while you’re at it.
Shopping for Jewelry
The iconic CC logos in gold plated metal can be found on studded earrings, danglers and even bracelets. Looking for something different? Continue the search with long pendant necklaces, watches and wraparound belts.
Looking to invest in something you’ll hang onto for a long time? Check out the brand’s sleek pleated trousers, blouses and coats. Something as simple as wool cropped trousers will look great with a button-up blouse and a T-shirt.
