About Cambon

Chanel Cambon - Chanel's Quilted Contrasted Logo Design

Cambon is a line of quilted handbags by French high-fashion luxury brand Chanel. Though fashion designer Coco Chanel is perhaps most famous for her trademark little black dresses, she is also known for creating beloved designs like the Cambon. Crafted in Italy from high-quality calfskin, the Chanel Cambon handbag comes in tote, ligne, bowling bag, clutch pochette, reporter bag, and clutch styles. Each of these styles has unique characteristics and come in different leather and lining colors. Each of these quilted shoppers is distinguished by a large Chanel double-C logo in a contrasting color. Its debut was a modern approach from Chanel, different from the brand's prior designs. For this reason, the bag was very hit-and-miss among consumers. Because not everyone was on board with the bold new design, the Cambon was eventually discontinued in 2012. This upset the Chanel lovers of the design, inspiring many to seek out used Cambon bags.

Because it has been discontinued, the Chanel Cambon tote is a popular choice among resellers. Chanel S.A. is a privately held French company owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gérard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, who was an early business partner of the couturière Coco Chanel. Chanel S.A. is a high fashion house that specializes in haute couture and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods, and fashion accessories. In her youth, Gabrielle Chanel gained the nickname Coco from her time as a chanteuse. As a fashion designer, Coco Chanel catered to women's taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewelry (gemstone and bijouterie) of simple design, that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. The House of Chanel is known for the "little black dress," the perfume No. 5 de Chanel, and the Chanel Suit. Chanel's use of jersey fabric produced garments that were comfortable and affordable. Chanel revolutionized fashion - high fashion (haute couture) and everyday fashion (prêt-à-porter) - by replacing structured-silhouettes, based upon the corset and the bodice, with garments that were functional and at the same time flattering to the woman's figure.
