Continually renewed, the CHANEL tweed jacket reveals its latest transformation. In white and sometimes ecru, the House’s signature piece pairs with miniskirts featuring one or two pockets. Colourful, delicately embroidered trim reprises the motif of CHANEL’s statement metal chain to better highlight its line: straight, structured, perfectly aligned. A silk lining matches chiffon tops applied with multicoloured flowers with beads made by the Maison Lemarié. A fine brass chain is hemmed into the lining to ensure the jacket falls perfectly — one of the House’s precious details.
