Oh no here it comes…another Sex in the City reference in this here blogsphere. Blame Carrie Bradshaw and her obsession with True Fashionista Manolo Blahnik shoes, as she so famously quoted:
“You can take my Fendi baguette. You can take my ring and watch but you can’t take my Manolo Blahniks.”
Yes of course Coco Chanel is synonymous with all that is True Fashionista, and label namesake Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel led quite the adventurous and exciting life, breaking ground and introducing now legendary items and looks that we just could not do without in our style pursuits. Even now, in the pandemic and most cautiously, post-pandemic era, we continue to use Chanel as a standard against which many fashion entities are measured.
