The Most Iconic Products from Chanel Philippines

Ever since Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel opened her boutique at 31 rue Cambon in Paris in 1918, the fashion house has been making statement clothing pieces and accessories. While Chanel began producing hats and clothing initially, the fashion house then expanded their collection to jewelry, fragrance, timepieces, and cosmetics.

Products from Chanel have graced the top of many must-haves list from renowned fashion and beauty magazines and online platforms. Keep reading to find some of the latest iconic Chanel handbags, makeup, and more.

Legendary Chanel Clothing and Footwear

During the time where puffy skirts with wire linings were still the trend, Chanel combined breathable material with a masculine silhouette to create some of her legendary clothing pieces. For example, the tweed jackets style were initially worn exclusively by men but Chanel found beauty in the fabric and turned the masculine tweed into something more feminine. Now, the Chanel suit made from Tweed is worn by women who seek to exude sophistication and elegance.

Another legendary item from Chanel’s collection is the little black dress. It was truly ahead of its time because women would only wear black clothing when mourning a passing. However, when Vogue published a sketch of Chanel’s little black dress, it all changed and individuals all over the world began to wear the dress for many occasions. Audrey Hepburn helped popularize the little black dress, along with faux pearl necklace also worn by Chanel, in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Other clothing and footwear items popularized by the brand are yachting pants, Breton top, and the two-tone shoes.

The Best Chanel Handbags

Aside from clothing, Chanel designed handbags that were inspired by soldiers’ bags with thin shoulder straps. The exclusive 2.55 Quilted Bag was then created because Chanel grew tired of carrying her things in her clutch. The bag has a quilted diamond or herringbone pattern to give the bag shape and volume. It also features the double CC logo front lock, known as the Mademoiselle Lock, referring to the fact that Chanel never married.

Now, the bag has many variations and is available in multiple colors, fabrics, designs, and patterns. An example would be the Chanel Classic Flap Bag, introduced in 1983 by Karl Lagerfeld as a reinterpretation of the 2.55, also known as the Reissue.

The Boy Bag is also one of the brand’s most popular handbags. It was inspired by one of Chanel’s suitors, Arthur “Boy” Chapel and features a bold design embellished with heavy hardware details. Just like the 2.55 or the Flap Bag, the Chanel Boy Bag also has a double CC monogram lock. Besides the Chanel Boy Bag and the Chanel Flap Bag, the Chanel Wallet on Chain and Chanel Medallion Tote have also become customers’ favorites throughout the years.

Chanel’s Signature Perfumes and Fragrances

Moving on to fragrances, Chanel is perhaps known for its Chanel No. 5 perfume. Released in 1922, the Chanel No. 5 perfume contains notes of peach, bergamot, ylang-ylang, aldehydes, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, moss, patchouli, and Bourbon vanilla.

The perfume’s popularity can be attributed to it being worn by many celebrities and famous figures, predominantly Marilyn Monroe. Almost a century later in the 2010’s, the Chanel No. 5 is still one the best-selling designer fragrances in the world.

Following closely, the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle perfume was introduced to cater to the brand’s younger audience. This luxury fragrance was inspired by Coco Chanel’s never-ending energy and is presented in a bottle similar to Chanel No. 5’s. The Chanel Coco Mademoiselle has scents of jasmine, patchouli, vetiver, and rose, perfect for young, sophisticated individuals everywhere. Along with the No. 5 and Coco Mademoiselle, other famous Chanel fragrances include No. 19, Les Excusifsde Chanel 1932, and Chance Chanel.
