No, I do not know the answer really. I am a total newbie in this field. The only think I know one of these precious vintage pieces find its way into my closet.
You don’t find a Chanel jacket, It finds you. It will come at the right time, when you have earned it, when you finally have the elegance to wear it likes it’s cheap.
There is no other piece of clothing that transcends time, style and age as gracefully. I wear mine with black simple pants paired with ballet flats or with pleated skirt or as the jacket is quiet new for me I didn’t try it with jeans yet, but will do it very soon and hopefully please you with few snap shots.
What is Chanel jacket about?
Why it feels so comfy? It has a soft sweater like quality, and it’s sooo comfortable!
Another important secret of the Chanel jacket is in the paneling, there are multiple panels in each jacket created to fit a woman’s body perfectly not only to keep its shape but it allows for sizing up or down 2-3 sizes! I bought mine in a size, which was definitely not mine. Too tight to be precise and because of the multiply panelling ( in my case 12 panels) I was able to make it my very fitted personal size. Yeah, i did by myself!
Why to buy a vintage Chanel jacket? Why the Chanel jacket is the most coveted piece of clothes?
The CHANEL jacket is the most iconic and identifiable with the House of Chanel for almost 100 years (the first Chanel jackets were made in 1916).
In the future I will try to cover the theme Chanel generally often because simply it’s my passion, my love.
So and now to my very first vintage Chanel jacket in pink with black trimming, coming from the Chanel Spring/Summer 1991 collection, on the catwalk worn by Yasmeen Ghauri.
