Chanel, French luxury.
The prestigious House of Chanel is indisputably one of the best-known haute couture brands in the whole world today. And yet it was created over one hundred years ago. At the origin of the brand is one women with a very strong personality, Coco Chanel. Her creative genius gave birth to fashion that was avant-garde and very daring. The first line was made up of clothes, but accessories, jewellery and fragrances would quickly be added to the offering Chanel was proposing to the public. Signature products like the Boy bag, the little black dress and Chanel N°5 perfume have all helped the French brand build up its solid reputation on a worldwide scale.
Swimsuits designed to meet the needs of an era.
With the advent of paid vacation in France in the 1940's, more and more families started going away on holiday. That gave them the opportunity of revealing a little more of their bodies than usual with swimsuits that were refined and feminine. The primary objective was to offer protection from the sun but the underlying desire was to be elegant at all times. The swimwear, one-piece suits or bikinis, came with drapes, frills, cinched waists (or not), in long or short versions. It all depended on the era and the latest trends. In any case, Chanel swimsuits are an elegant blend of style and comfort. Lastly, we find the famous logo with two interlocking Cs, the brand's instantly recognisable emblem, on the models of swimsuits and accessories (sarongs, towels, etc.), along with the use of black and white.
