Ruched Black Sheath

One of the most iconic and influential designers of all time, Coco Chanel created timeless designs that freed women from confining corsets of the early times. Her creative genius lay in designing dresses and suits that was the perfect balance of menswear-inspired elements and feminine grace.  As Chanel once said, “luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury”; with simple silhouettes and textures that were borrowed heavily from the men’s wardrobe, she started a new trend that was revolutionary but soon became popular in the 1920’s.

Born as Gabrielle Chanel, she adopted the stage name ‘Coco’ from her stint as a concert singer. Then, she established herself as a couturier selling simple cloche hats, where her customers found her loose jersey dresses different and stylish; soon it became an instant hit. Later, she set up her Haute couture salon Maison Chanel that gained popularity and Coco Chanel’s fame rose from a designer to a style icon.

In just two years, Coco Chanel became famous-enough to launch a perfume, Chanel No.5, Chanel’s signature fragrance and their most iconic product till date. The perfume is currently the World’s best selling fragrance with a bottle being sold every 30 seconds! And with such fame following her, can stardom be far behind? In no time, she became the touted dressmaker for celebrities like Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich and her costumes were even used in movies like Antigone (1923) and Oedipus Rex (1937).

True to her words “Fashion passes, style remains”, Coco Chanel still remains one of the most iconic designers of all times. One of her most famous creations, the LBD, gave women the ultimate fashion staple for all seasons and occasions!

Coco Chanel once said “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”; buy a classic LBD from BR and pair it with a pretty pearl necklace to look classy and fabulous!
