The Chanel evolution began in 1910 in France. Chanel’s motto, “Where beauty begins” explains the essence of Chanel. The company was built on the beliefs that beauty only begins once you decide that you are unique, and you must be yourself. Self-confidence is also where beauty begins. Chanel began with providing simple, beautiful, elegant designs in clothing that quickly spread throughout Paris. Their popularity increased with the release of the now world-famous perfume. After that, Chanel wanted to complete the look and created iconic designer frames so every woman could feel beautiful. Her vintage eyewear can be found in both eyeglass frames and sunglasses.
