Considered by many to be the holy grail of handbags, styles by Chanel are the ultimate trophy accessory. Ever since Coco Chanel opened shop in 1909, the house has put out nothing but fashion brilliance, with Karl Lagerfeld continuing the tradition today. Whether you covet a classic Flap Bag, a street style favorite like the Boy Bag or an embellished piece from the runway, a gorgeous Chanel is definitely worth the investment.
According to the New York Post, the “Gucci ♥ NY” campaign doesn’t seem to be reciprocated by New York. The campaign, which features Gucci items emblazoned with the “Gucci ♥ NY” slogan, began in order to celebrate the opening of the New York Gucci Store. The store is Gucci’s largest, with 46,000 square feet on three floors of the Trump Tower. However, Gucci forgot that New York State holds a copyright on the iconic red and black “I ♥ NY” graphic. In order to use it, Gucci would have to get permission to use the logo in an altered way. It is unclear what will happen to all the merchandise until this gets sorted out. The “Gucci ♥ NY” line features a handbag for $630, silk scarf for $320, and a hard-sided luggage bag priced at $6,900, among other items. Fashiontary ♥ Gucci but, seriously, how stupid can you be. Oops.

Chanel is one of today’s best known and most highly sought-after fashion brands, and has been one practically since it was founded by Coco (Gabrielle) Chanel in 1909. Her big break hit when she opened a small shop in Paris in 1910 where she sold her hats. And by 1913, after asserting disdain for resort wear, she launched sportswear: Her take was simpler—flannel blazers, jersey sweaters, and women in trousers, all of which were decidedly against twentieth-century culture memes.
Famed fashion designer Coco Chanel was born Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel on August 19, 1883, in Saumur, France. With her trademark suits and little black dresses, Coco Chanel created timeless designs that are still popular today. She herself became a much revered style icon known for her simple yet sophisticated outfits paired with great accessories, such as several strands of pearls. As Chanel once said,“luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury.”
In 1925, she introduced the now legendary Chanel suit with collarless jacket and well-fitted skirt. Her designs were revolutionary for the time—borrowing elements of men’s wear and emphasizing comfort over the constraints of then-popular fashions. She helped women say goodbye to the days of corsets and other confining garments.
