Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel opened a Parisian millinery shop in the early 1900s. By the 1920s she was revolutionizing the world of women's fashion. The interlocking double-C logo is synonymous with elegance and high French style. Under the creative leadership of Karl Lagerfeld since 1983, the House of Chanel continues to set the standard for designer quality and desirability. Leather is bonded to classic Chanel tweed, giving it a textual appearance. Quilted sides with exposed tweed fringe finish this fresh take on a classic tote.
