The Legacy of Coco Chanel

Remembering Coco Chanel - 50 years on since the death of the revolutionary woman of fashion. Here we reflect on her legacy and one of her most iconic designs in the fashion industry. 


 

  

 

 

50 years on since the death of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel (10 January 1971), a revolutionary of women’s fashion whose love of sport influenced her designs with materials and cuts that enhanced the female form, celebrated femininity and exuded both class and style.  A fashion icon whose legacy lives on through the decades with her clothing lines worn by the social elite and copied for the high street. Her designs exude a quality and class that others only aspire to replicate.
