At home with Chanel

Sublime. August 19 will be the
125th anniversay of her birth. She is one of those rare talents, like Frank Lloyd Wright or Andy Warhol, who will always be with us in the present tense.

For all the lauditory media when YSL died, I really do feel that Chanel did more to change women's true style than he did.

I remember during my fashion degree my fashion history tutor pointing out that Coco Chanel was responsible for bringing simplicity to women's fashion not once but twice in her career. The first time was at the end of the Belle Epoque when women's clothes were heavy, overstylized with exaggerated superimposed decoration. The second time was her comeback in 1954 when she rebelled against the heavy Dior style of dressing and once again brought practical, simple and chic fashion to women.

I guess she did do a lot to change women's true style, but both she and YSL were of their time, doing what good designers do best - influencing the society in which they lived as well as being influenced by it.

Designer handbags are the handbags which are manufactured by us keeping in mind the best designs of the well known brands but the raw material and designers employed are our own. Hence, these are available at reasonable prices. The quality of these Designer handbags is also competitive in the market.
