It's really not "just a bag".....

Why a Chanel bag is never JUST a bag by Chanel.

 

What’s a bag? I looked in the Cambridge Dictionary for a definition and got: “noun, a flexible container with an opening at the top, used for carrying things.”


That is sooo not what a bag is and it most certainly is NOT what a Chanel bag is!

 

Coco Chanel  was a remarkable lady, tenacious and determined, she makes Meryl Streep’s character in The Devil Wears Prada look like a downtrodden ragamuffin and she was never, ever short of a good quote!

 

"Fashion changes, but style endures."

 

That is what a Chanel bag is … pure, enduring, everlasting style!  Instantly recognizable, instantly covetable.

 

I don’t know if I exactly become a green eyed monster when I see a woman carrying a Chanel Black Caviar Shopping Tote,

but I do look at her differently. I imbue her with the spirit of Coco; irreverent, independent, owning the world and going out to battle with a slash of lipstick, a spray of perfume and the promise of a glass or two of champagne when she’s finished taming the universe.

 

Some designer brands are overpowering, they wear the owner, instead of complimenting the dresser.  It’s interesting to see that some of these newer, flashier brands, though initially more expensive, are not holding their value against the Grandes Dames of Haute Couture, who remain the French houses of Hermes, Louis Vuitton and of course, the irrepressible Chanel.

 

“I don’t do fashion. I am fashion."
