History

The history of Chanel handbags dates back to 1929. This year declared the launch of their first item. These bags were stylish, but they lacked moderation and feasibility. Most of them were hand-carried and were challenging to tag along. By 1955, Chanel realized this cumbersome nature of bags and introduced flap-style bags, which were easy to carry around anywhere without occupying your hand. This style of bags was a new one to the fashion industry. However, it was adopted earlier than expected. The adaption of this style was not enforcement but a feasible and easy solution for everyone. Till the year 1980, strap design was widely used. After that, Chanel changed the interface of the classic bag by adding interlocking C's that is their logo at the front of the bag. Now it is unimaginable to see a bag without that sign. They didn't only change the interface, but they worked on different kinds of straps and introduced leather woven and chained straps to add more to their variety. Moreover, to widen their scope and variety of bags, they took inspiration from men's jackets that contain straps and introduced a new range of bags. (Boca Raton Pawn 2018)
