Speak Fluent ‘Chanel’ and Improve Your Fashion Vocabulary with This Video

Did you know that the classic Chanel ‘2.55’ bag was inspired by men’s military satchels, or that the ‘Little Black Dress’ was inspired by the uniforms of nuns from Coco Chanel’s childhood? You can now learn about the integral elements of the storied fashion house through the website Inside Chanel, a platform dedicated to educating fans of the brand through a series of short savoir faire films.

Timeless music built around five notes by which women instantly recognize the essence of Chanel: luxury and refinement.”
