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. A playful take on a classic, this dis-constructed flap features double handles and a mademoiselle turnlock, however, they're placed like you've never seen them before. A wonderful addition for serious collectors, and equally a perfect first Chanel for beginners.
