Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel is perhaps the most well-known fashion designer of all time. Forty years after her death, her namesake fashion house is still one of the world’s most popular luxury brands, boasting legions of devoted fans worldwide, and continues to grow.
And here at LuxResale, it’s safe to say we’re big, big fans of this woman. We certainly count her among our top favorite designers, and we’re sure many of you agree!
Fun Fact: The very popular fragrance, Chanel No. 5, got its name because the number five was Gabrielle Chanel’s lucky number. This also prompted her to premiere the fragrance in 1921 on the fifth day of the fifth month. Side note and bonus fact: Coincidentally, Marilyn Monroe’s favorite scent was Chanel No 5. which led her to become the official face of the fragrance. This is arguably one of the first records of a celebrity endorsement/spokes model.
