Chanel, the double CC is one of the most familiar symbols of our time but Coco Chanel did not easily make the brand what it is today. This piece pays tribute to the fashion legend, with each element being sourced from around the world to create one work of art. Some elements date back to the early 1900's, as well as the Chanel shoes and purse, taking over half a year to create. The artist sketch below describes in detail the significance of each element, telling her story.
