Chanel Deauville - A Beachy Tote Inspired by Humble Beginnings

Deauville is a line of quilted handbags by French high-fashion luxury brand Chanel.

Three years after becoming a licensed milliner, Coco Chanel opened her first fashion boutique in 1913 in Deauville - a tiny resort town in Normandy, France. It was one of the most popular seaside locales of the French Belle Époque, where trends were set and people went to be seen. This, of course, inspired the name of the beachy Deauville tote bag. 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.
