Chanel handbags are the very definition of classy and luxury. The Chanel brand has kept things focused on classy, elegance, and Parisian sophistication. The brand founder Coco Chanel was known for her class, elegance, and signature Chanel suit and strings of costume jewelry. Her idea of handbags has stayed a part of the Chanel brand in a way, although, chanel bags are both a combination of classic elegance and modern fashionista appeal.
History of Chanel Handbags
Coco Chanel created her first handbag in 1929. It was a clutch handheld bag that didn’t offer much practicality for the user. Coco Chanel’s far more popular bag was designed in 1955. It was made to be put over a shoulder for convenience purposes. The bag had the signature front flap look with a front lock that would become the signature look for Chanel handbags. Even today the flap bag style is used by Chanel. The brand’s only significant major change to Chanel flap bags was the incorporation of the interlocking c symbol on the front locking mechanism of the bag. This was added in the 1980s. Before that, the brand had a generic Mademoiselle locking mechanism that did not carry a logo. The brand’s signature interlocking c lock is now featured on many of the current Chanel flap bags. Some of them still have a standard Mademoiselle locking feature.
