Chanel is a French luxury fashion house founded in 1910 by Coco Chanel in Paris. Chanel specializes in women’s ready-to-wear, luxury goods, and accessories and licenses its name and branding to Luxottica for eyewear. Chanel is well known for its No. 5 perfume and “Chanel Suit”. Chanel is credited for revolutionizing haute couture and ready-to-wear by replacing structured, corseted silhouettes with more functional garments that women still found flattering.
