Coco Chanel was a leading French designer and founder of Chanel, whose patterns of simplicity and style revolutionized women’s clothing. She was the only designer to be listed in the Time 100 most influential people of the Twentieth Century. She also created her famous No.5 scent, which continues to be the best selling scent in the world. The interlocking C’s remain one of the ultimate brand insignia.
With her trademark suits and little black dresses, Coco created timeless designs that are still popular today. She herself became a much revered style icon known for her simple yet sophisticated outfits paired with great accessories, such as several strands of pearls. The building where her apartment is in Paris was bought by the designer in 1920, and still houses the ground-floor shop, the haute couture workrooms in the attic (where 100 seamstresses still work entirely by hand), and what is now Karl Lagerfeld’s study.
