History: Coco Chanel is a famed fashion designer, known for works such as her iconic little black dresses and suits. Her timeless creations are still popular today. Chanel did not lead a privileged life at a young age. Her father had to put her in an orphanage after her mother’s death. She was raised by nuns and acquired sewing skills. She also had a brief career as a singer and was simply known as 'Coco' in the clubs that she performed at.
The legendary Chanel suit, with well-fitted skirt and collarless jacket, was introduced in 1925. Her designs borrowed menswear elements and emphasized comfort over the constraints of the time. It was her way of bidding farewell to corsets and other confining garments.
In the 1920s, Chanel also got tired of carrying then-popular handbags in her arms. She decided to design something that could free up her hands. The fashion house of Chanel manufactured the iconic quilted purses, backpacks, and leather handbags – the Chanel 2.55.
