It’s generally known I do adore a perfect craftsmanship and high quality of making and before I will collect all the knowledge and more over a courage to make my own Chanel inspired jacket I discovered a new hobby of mine: purchasing an authentic (vintage/ pre owned) Chanel jackets.
Happy to announce my pink Chanel jacket has got a company: a royal blue Chanel jacket ( probably 1997) and red briquette short Chanel jacket my birthday present (Pre Fall 2010, Paris – Shanghai collection). Both of them will be shown here later. Pls feel free to try to identify the blue blazer. Any feedback will be appreciated.:-)
Why to shop for a vintage clothing?
It’s fun, it’s adventure, it can feel like searching for buried treasures. To bringing home something special, you will have to become an expert where to shop, what different types of shops carry, what can be consider a good buy and first of all be always ready for a hunt.:-)
Vintage clothes are much more interesting and very often of higher quality than today’s pieces.
Finds that earn your attention
-Chanel jackets, sheath dresses and of course accessories
-Dresses/ clothes by Christian Dior and Hubert de Givenchy
-Trench coats by Burberry or Aquascutum
-Diane von Fürstenberg wraped dresses
So and now few (Chanel inspired) sketches for my next sewing projects.
