Coco Chanel and Suntan Stockings

August 7, 2012 under Vintage

Before Coco Gabrielle Chanel, suntan was something associated with peasants and women tried to avoid it at all costs.

But thanks to her, she put an end to that trend and even came out with her own line of tan stockings by Chanel.  Even up to this day, Chanel brand still offers hosiery.

Interesting Point:

Did you know that before she became a fashion legend, Coco Chanel used to work as a clerk in a small hosiery shop? Legends do start small! From humble beginnings to grandeur!

Career: Clerk, Au Sans Pareil hosiery shop, Moulins, 1902-04

This Chanel design in the photo has been copied and re-created by so many different brands. But nothing looks the same as Chanel.
