Chanel Cream Crinkle Leather Jacket

10 Things We Love About Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel:

1. Here nickname is Coco-too f*in cute-meets-chic for words

2. A feminist revolution who completely did way with corset

3. Originally a milliner who got her start placing her hats on the heads of famous French actresses

4. Held a tight grip over the reigns of Chanel by presiding as chief designer from 1909 - 1971

5. Moved into the Hotel Ritz Paris--Her suite is still referred to as the CoCo Chanel suite

6. Met with a fortune teller who told her that the number was her lucky number--so CoCo named her first perfume No. 5 and debuted the scent on the 5th day of the fifth month, May.

7. In 1926, CoCo invented another wardrobe mainstay: the LBD (little black dress)

8. In the same year, she also began experimenting with tweeds, inspired by a trip to Scotland, and created her first tweed skirt suit--now considered a seminal Chanel piece.

9. After closing her couture house in 1939 (only perfumes and accessories were sold in Chanel boutiques), Chanel re-opened the fashion house in 1954 and helmed the House herself at the spritely age of 71.

10. This crinkled leather jacket crafted in a signature boxy Chanel style and features black trimming, CC button closures and signature camellia interior embroidery. Available at d2 for $1500, gently worn and in next-to-new condition! For further information or to purchase, please contact: thegang@decadestwo.com
