Chanel, a House famous for its highly-coveted women's handbags.
The brand Chanel was founded in 1910 under Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel, and has therefore now been in existence for well over a century. The initial intention of the brand and its emblematic founder was to bring creativity and innovation to the forefront but also and perhaps especially, the emancipation of women. That is precisely how Chanel helped change the course of fashion and history itself. Numerous lines of clothing, accessories, fragrances and jewels have seen the light of day since the luxury brand joined the fashion landscape. Amongst the illustrious designs to come out of Chanel's workshops, certain bags stand out from all the others. That is true of the Timeless Classique design.
The Timeless Classique bag, a perennial piece from Chanel.
Collections of handbags by Chanel are highly lusted-after by women everywhere. The Timeless Classique bag is one of the best-loved designs from the eminently respected House. This small quilted design with its shoulder strap takes its inspiration from the bags soldiers used to carry. It gives women incredible freedom of movement. Thanks to the design, you can transport all those day-to-day essentials you could never do without. The Timeless Classique was created in 1983 by Karl Lagerfeld, who was the creative director at the time. It is, in fact, a new take on the famous 2.55 design with a clasp bearing the double Chanel "C". As for the handle, it consists of a chain entwined with leather. Season after season, the design is revisited with quality leathers, fur, wool and various other materials, in a host of different colours. The possibilities are endless and the variety of versions has helped make the bag a timeless must-have.
