I often use Chanel bags in my sets. No matter what size or model, they're always iconic!
My favourite Chanel quote is Don't be like the rest of them darling.
@sammie-g In your outfit, you rocked a Chanel bag in "Vermillion" - that's like a super intense red, not just a style choice but also super meaningful.
That Vermillion red was all about strength, passion, and courage for Coco Chanel. She was all about bold colors in her designs to show off women's independence and power. Red, being one of her faves, wasn't just meant to turn heads but also to shout out confidence and bravery to whoever's carrying it.
The quilted lambskin the bag is made of? Another sign of Chanel's obsession with details. The quilting technique, called "matelassé," doesn't just give the bag some texture and depth but also makes it last longer and look all luxe. Lambskin is super soft and flexible, making Chanel bags a total dream to hold and super durable.
Plus, every Chanel bag, including the Vermillion ones, is like a masterpiece from hours of work by skilled artisans. Making one bag can take up to 180 different steps, which just shows how committed the brand is to quality and precision. So, Chanel bags, especially the quilted lambskin in Vermillion, aren't just fashion items; they're like art pieces that reflect the brand's rich history and tradition.
My favorite things about Chanel are the structured tailoring, timeless pearls, and of course those classic Chanel bags!
My favorite one, I had as a decal on my huge vanity mirror..." A Woman can be Over-dressed, but never Over-Elegant." Another that I liked was "A Woman should be 2 things, classy and fabulous." There was another good one about never leaving home without putting on lipstick which always reminded me of my late Mother because she lived by that rule.
