エンジョイシンプルイングリッシュ 10/6
ココ・シャネル/Coco Chanel

 

Chanel is a high fashion brand that is loved by many people.

It was created in 1910 and has continued to be popular for more than 100 years.

 

One of the reasons for its popularity is because Shanel has always created clothes that women needed before they knew they needed them.

 

The person who created the brand was Coco Chanel.

In 2008 and 2009, three movies about her life were made.

People loved hearing about both her talent as a designer and her very unique lifestyle as well.

 

Coco was born as Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel in France.

Her mother died so she grew up in an orphanage, a home for children was no parents.

She learned how to sew there.

But Coco did not dream of being a fashion designer.

She wanted to be a singer.

 

She sometimes sang about a woman named “Coco” and the song became popular with her fans.

They often asked her to sing Coco and so that became her nickname as a singer.

Her singing career wasn’t successful.

But for the rest of her life, she told everyone to call her Coco.

By doing this, maybe she wanted to remember her time on the stage or maybe she wanted to remember the time that she didn’t succeed.

 

Around the year 1900, when Coco started working as a designer, almost no women worked.

Coco wanted to start her own business.

But because it was hard for women to earn money she needed the help of rich men.

This is why she was sometimes thought to be a woman who fell in love easily and tricked many men.

 

Why did a poor girl do so well?

Coco has said about herself, 

“I’m always sure I will win.

That has given me power and the secret to my success.

 

Before World War Ⅰ, women work corsets under their dresses.

The corsets made it difficult for women to move.

 

During the war, many men had to go and fight so women had to work.

Coco designed clothes that had no corsets.

These clothes were designed for living not for dressing up.

The designs were a little like clothing worn by the nans for the orphanage in which Coco grew up.

(nan:おばあちゃん)

She also took hints from the uniforms of military officers and the clothes of her boyfriends from other countries.

The clothes were both elegant and useful.

They were perfect for the changing lifestyles of women.

She also created the little black dress.

Before that,  black dresses were only worn for funerals.

Coco’s idea was that black dresses were good for any event.

Even today, the Chanel suit that Coco first designed in the 1920s is worn by many people.

And the little black dress is still a popular choice among women.

 

Coco said, 

“I don’t want you to know to be called fashion.

Fashion phase-only style remains the same.

That’s why Shanel is style.”
