CHANEL is a vocabulary, a set of canons, a discipline. A grammar.
In Chapter 14 of Inside CHANEL, unveil “The Vocabulary of Fashion” through the history, symbols, and codes of Gabrielle Chanel, and how it’s continuously reinvented by Karl Lagerfeld. Gabrielle Chanel set in place a new language of fashion, and a style that never ceases to perpetuate itself thanks to Karl Lagerfeld.
The quilted handbag inspired by men’s satchels, the little black dress, costume jewelry, the camellia, the chain, the two-tone shoe, the pearl and tweed are all integral elements of the CHANEL vocabulary.
