We'll show you 24 looks from the catwalk with the elephant accessory that Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel loved to wear.
Chanel: The black bow is a special accessory to this day
Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel regularly wore a black bow in her hair. So it is only logical that this accessory still plays an important role for the French fashion house to this day, similar to the camellia brooch, pearls, and tweed costumes that made up the style of the late designer.
In memory of Coco's love for the simple accessory, you can still often see black bows in the hair of the models at the Chanel shows. Not only is it versatile, but it is also easy to carry. Let yourself be inspired by the 24 most beautiful catwalk looks of the past few years.
