The tweed

The iconic tweed suit became a symbol of the brand. With the evolution of the brand evolved and the tweed suit, which even today has a modern appeal.


Chanel No 5

“A woman who does not wear perfume is a woman without future” – this is one of the most famous wisdoms of Coco Chanel and the first perfume of the brand Chanel No 5 and today is one of the best-selling perfumes in the history of the perfumery.


The chains are for the real ladies
