Who designed Chanel before Karl Lagerfeld?

1 Answer
Who designed Chanel before Karl Lagerfeld?
Before Karl Lagerfeld, Coco Chanel designed for the fashion house she founded in Paris in 1910. After her death in 1971, Chanel focused primarily on selling fragrances and cosmetics, but this changed after Lagerfeld joined the house in 1984. Vintage Karl Lagerfeld designs for Chanel handbags, evening dresses, coats, jewelry and other clothing and accessories riffed on its iconography, accenting a lexicon of Chanel-isms with tastes of the moment.
