Chanel Fall 1999 Boucle Cropped Blazer

Generally, the end of the fourteenth century is seen as the birthdate of fashion, or when clothing represented more than class or professional position. Rather clothing was designed, in order to reflect personal preferences and in doing so, brought style as an influence to life's choices. N one understood this balance of influence and decision more than Chanel. We can still see her form and function marriage, for example, in this cropped blazer with dolman sleeves, hook-and-eye metal front closures with logo stamp and boucle with metallic threading. Women were for the first time, able to dress not just by social status as their determining wardrobe factor, but were able to select garments based on their style and a certain comfort level meant for all people. Vive La Revolution! In mint condition and priced at $600. In a size 40. For further information or to purchase, please contact:

Chanel Spring 2003 Cream Boucle Jacket with Sequins

Ah, mademoiselle Chanel, the lady made famous for tailoring men's fashions to suit both her whimsical and practical needs. In fact the contributions to women's fashions for which she is still most associated with today, her soft-bleted coats, tweeds and blazers, sailor sweaters and cuff linked shirts, were all inspired by the Duke of Westminster's wardrobe. We love a borrowed-from-the-boys look and find the perfect mix of masculine/feminine in this Spring 2003 blazer. Slightly boxy, it has a longer huntsman cut and design but is accented with miniature sequin details. Ah, Chanel. They always get it right. In a size 40 and in mint condition.

Chanel Champagne Boucle Spring 2003 Blazer

"A woman should wear fragrance wherever she expects to be kissed." -CoCo Chanel

At the beginning of the 20th century, CoCo chanel comissioned Enrest Beaux to create 6 samples of perfume for her. Bottle No. 5 was the one she liked best--perhaps due to the fact that a fortune teller had once told CoCo that her lucky number was the number 5--and in keeping with her auspicious numerical forecast, she introduced the fragrance to some of her friends on 5/5/1921. Originally, the perfume was given away free to favored clients and the dressing rooms at Chanel were scented with No. 5. In 1924, Chanel partnered with Pierre Wertheimer and the fragrance was sold internationally.

Sales of the scent increased exponentially when in 1953 Marilyn Monroe was asked what she wore to bed. Monroe's infamous answer: "Two drops of Chanel No. 5" So dab on a little No. 5, wherever you expect to be kissed, throw this chic champagne boucle blazer from the Spring 2003 collection over a silk cami and create that Chanel je ne sais quoi mystique--in Coco herself's words, "something abstact and unique". In a size 36 and priced at $1300. For further information or to purchase, please contact:
