Chanel’s Journey of the Quilted Icon

May 5, 2010 • Accessories


If you're by the Chanel 57th Street flagship store in New York City next week, you have the chance to learn a little history about one of the most historical and recognizable fashion pieces of all time.

Chanel's quilted bag will be featured in "The Secrets of the Chanel Handbag", an exhibit that shows the history and construction of Chanel purses. It takes the viewer on a journey from the beginning stages of its production to its evolution over the years and impact on society today. Bags from the Chanel Paris archives will even be on display, as well as the recent versions from Karl Lagerfeld.

The exhibition runs from this Saturday, May 8 to May 16.
