Chanel has been a driving force in the fashion industry since couturiere Coco Chanel came onto the scene in 1909. In the past 110 years, her simple line designs and colours typically associated with masculinity, made Chanel a standout against the over designed and constrictive clothes and accessories of the 19th century. While primarily her designs focused on blouses, suits, trousers, and dresses, she dedicated her time to creating jewellery of timeless design which fashion models, idols, and actresses still wear to this day. It is one of those brands which has not gone out of style yet, and most likely never will, making any Chanel purchase an investment.
Brooches in History

Doubling as a practical item to keep clothes fastened while being a fashionable item. Brooches have been used since the times on ancient Europe, with many archaeological discoveries finding them popular in Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Scandinavian, Medieval, and Roman times.
