The origin of the Chanel logo

The legendary Chanel logo with duplicate letter C was first applied to a bottle of perfume Chanel № 5 in 1925. Shortly thereafter, the logo appeared on all that was produced by the brand.

Throughout the history of fashion were several theories about the origin of the logo. The most common is the first letter of the surname with designers Chanel, as, for example, with other designers V - Valentino Clemente Ludovico Dzharavani (Valentino), YSL - Yves Saint Laurent (Yves Saint Laurent), DG - Dolce and Gabbana (Dolce & Gabbana). But recently, the official website of Chanel was presented the true version of the origin of the logo. Double C logo was inspired by a stained-glass window in the chapel inside the Aubazine monastery where there were children from the orphanage where Coco Chanel lived for several years.
