“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it’s not luxury.” Nevertheless, “A girl should be two things: Classy and fabulous.” Even forty years after her demise, Mademoiselle Coco Chanel’s words ring true in the designs and concepts of her world-famous fashion company. Chanel stands for everything a modern woman wants – comfortable style in glamorous fashion. Since 1926 when Coco first designed it, Chanel’s iconic “Little Black Dress” has been a must-have in every woman’s closet. What first came out as a long-sleeved black dress with dropped waist crêpe de chin that was featured in Vogue now embraces as many styles and cuts as there are girls and differing personalities – capped sleeves, long sleeves or none at all; elegant high necklines or daringly low like Princess Diana’s; nipped waist, sheath, A-lined or one-shouldered. Chanel’s slimming and elegant black dress shows off the dazzle of jewelry and perfectly goes for any occasion, all there is left to do is add a dash of confidence and smile.
