Chanel is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable fashion houses in the world. Many designers tend to either stagnate by not updating the looks they are known for or to outgrow their own roots by drastically changing with the times. Instead, Chanel has grown by evolving the vision of its founder, while carrying the thread of its identity through repeated motifs: the Camelia, the tweed jacket, basic black, pearls. In that way, Chanel has helped define what is elegant and fashionable, rather than merely following the trends. The result is that you can look back on images from the s or the s, and see a Chanel look that feels just as relevant today.
