Chanel street style… really, is there anything more divine? While you may not see this Parisian behemoth's wares on every street every day, when it comes to fashion week, there's a guaranteed glut of the good stuff, especially when the show circuit touches down in France. Over the years, Coco Chanel's signature styles—pearl necklaces, bouclé jackets, two-tone shoes—have been reinvented countless times, thanks to longstanding Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld's unwavering, boundless enthusiasm for newness.
Each season, the team at Chanel produces some sort of must-have without fail: Whether that's a novelty piece that garners the attention of street style photographers (and can only be bought by those with enough cash to splash on something as frivolous as a hula-hoop handbag—remember that?) through a fresh iteration of its classic toe-cap shoes, we thought it high time to pull this delightful imagery together.
Go through the gallery to see Chanel's beautiful pieces in action, and if you're feeling inspired shop it secondhand here.
Style Notes: These classic shoes go with anything and everything, but mostly they look excellent with jeans.
Style Notes: Trust Man Repeller's Leandra Medine to breathe new life into Chanel's traditional weaves. By clashing a skirt suit and wearing a simple white T-shirt, you have a very modern ensemble Coco would be proud of.
