Chanel is a one of the world's most recognized fashion houses, founded by the late couturier Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel in 1909. The designer established new designs and revolutionized the fashion industry by going "back to basics", incorporating elegance, class, and originality. Coco Chanel's vision was to replace opulent, sexy pieces with items which conveyed casual elegance.

Chanel's designs and creations are truly timeless, considering that the basic silhouettes have remained consistent from generation to generation. The legendary designer's influence is consistently seen in modern days, with Chanel signatures: the chain-link quilted handbags, tweed jackets, chunky costume jewelry, and even the little black dress being among fashion’s most replicated designs.

Now helmed by Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel is probably the one of the most powerful and profitable brands in the world, specializing in haute couture, ready-to-wear, handbags, perfume, and cosmetics among others.

Celebrity fans of the iconic French fashion house include Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley, Blake Lively, and most famously, Marilyn Monroe.
