Nearly 70 years later, the CHANEL jacket is still fashion relevant and highly desirable.
There are only a handful of fashion items that have stood the test of time, the way the CHANEL jacket has. It’s amazing how almost everything in this photo could still be wearable today without a hint of nostalgia.
Soft, unstructured clothes were mademoiselle Chanel’s speciality, who catered for the modern woman of her time.
Do you share Chanel’s design philosophy that “clothes should be elegant, comfortable, and easy to move in.”?
I am in the process of clearing and reorganising my own wardrobe, I find reaching for my CHANEL jackets year after year. As well as a good handbag, a perfect fit jacket or coat is another key item to secure success in the small wardrobe.
To bring everything up to date, this season, will be accessorising with some nutty, block heels in velvet. Stay tuned, the builders who are destroying my flat, are also in charge of a custom made shoe cabinet. It will house 12 pairs of shoes, and that’s it. That will be my limit of shoe allocation year round!
For the upcoming season, I will also be looking to add another CHANEL jacket (or cardigan) in my collection. I have to be creative with money and selective about potential purchases, since my budget is fairly miniscule for CHANEL, my flat is swallowing up gold coins, at a most alarming rate.
What are your plans for Autumn wardrobe additions?
