Chanel sells its luxury goods worldwide through more than around 190 boutiques. Its clothes and jewelry cannot be bought online. The company's products are sold worldwide; it generates 40% of sales in Europe, 33% in the Asia/Pacific region, and 20% in the Americas.
The brand is mostly known for its “little black dress”, the Chanel No. 5 perfume and the Chanel Suit. Chanel's use of jersey fabric produced garments that were comfortable and affordable. They also replaced structured-silhouettes, based upon the corset and the bodice, with garments that were functional and at the same time flattering to the woman's figure.
