Chanel SA is an haute couture landmark in fashion, cosmetics and fragrances, with such memorable creations as the little black dress, Chanel No. 5, the tweed suit, the jersey dress, the chain belt and two-tone shoes. The company is also famous for its CC trademark, found on everything from cosmetic compacts to handbag closures. Founded in 1913 by stylist Gabrielle Chanel, known as Coco, the firm floundered for years until it was taken over by Karl Lagerfeld, who updated the style for a younger market. The house’s style is known for its simplicity and pure lines as well as several recurrent themes, including the camellia, the star, the faceted rectangle (inspired by the gardens of the Place Vendome) and matelassee (the lozenge design quilted into racecourse jockey jackets). The company also creates watches and fine jewelry and has a single license with Luxxotica for eyewear. Chanel operates more than 300 boutiques worldwide, several of which are located in Japan. These boutiques are divided into watches and fine jewelry, fashion, eyewear and fragrance and beauty. Some locations carry only one or a selection of these product lines. The firm also owns Eres, a French swimwear and lingerie label with several boutiques in France, the U.S. and Italy. Other Chanel brands include Paraffection and Robert Goossens. In September 2015, the firm announced it would be opening its first store in the Nordic region in central Stockholm. The store will have more than 550 square feet of floor space.
