Who were some of the couture designers who became known for their [link widoczny dla zalogowanych]?
I’d say Chanel was number one. Chanel seems to be incredibly hot right now. We’re getting the best prices ever for Chanel. She revolutionized the handbag in the ’50s with the 2.55 bag, which takes its name from the month and year it was introduced.
Chanel's black-fabric quilted purses from the 1960s had goldtone straps, a back pocket, double flaps, and a crimson CC-logo lining.
What set Chanel’s handbag apart was its shoulder strap. Every other bag prior to that only had a handle. Chanel’s had that long chain bag—the classic Chanel bag that you see pretty much everywhere. The strap was adjustable so you could carry it like a handbag or lengthen it to put over your shoulder. Of course, Chanel also revolutionized women’s clothing, too, because she introduced women to suits.
Another innovative designer was Hermès. They started off as a saddlery company, producing a lot of equestrian equipment and trunks,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but then Hermès pretty much revolutionized the handbag industry in the latter half of the 20th century. The Kelly bag that Grace Kelly wore, which she used to try to cover up her baby bump, is an iconic bag to this day.
Hermès also brought out the Birkin bag, for Jane Birkin, and the Constance bag that Jackie Onassis often carried. Until recently, Hermès was just an accessories company but they’ve started producing clothing, although they’re not known as a couture house.

The Gucci bag is also associated with Jackie and is even known as the Jackie bag because she wore it all the time. Gucci began making [link widoczny dla zalogowanych] in the ’60s. In addition to the Jackie bag, they were known for their bamboo handles—they did it once and it stuck. You see bamboo handles on Gucci bags to this day.
