About the House of Chanel
Chanel is the most iconic designer name in history. She revolutionized women’s fashion. She catered to women’s taste for elegance in dress, with blouses, suits, trousers, dresses, and jewelry of simple design, replacing the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion.
The House of Chanel began in 1909 when Gabrielle Chanel opened a millinery shop. She adding clothing in 1913. In 1921 the company developed the iconic Chanel #5 perfume. The couture house closed during WWII. Post-war, Chanel was able to revive her design house and introduce her famous silk boucle suit which has had so many iterations over the years. Coco Chanel died in 1971, at the age of 87. She was still designing at the time of her death.
In 1983 Karl Lagerfeld took over as chief designer for Chanel. Like Chanel, he looked to the past as inspiration for his designs. He incorporated the Chanel fabrics and detailing such as tweed, gold accents, and chains. Lagerfeld kept what was signature for Chanel but also helped bring the brand into today. In later collections, Lagerfeld chose to break away from the ladylike look of Chanel and began to experiment with fabrics and styles.
Lagerfield took the brand to bigger heights and like Chanel, was designing up to his death in 2019 at age 85. Virginie Viard, who had worked with Lagerfeld at the fashion house for over 30 years, was named the new Creative Director. The company is owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gérard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, who was an early business partner.
