"Simplicity is the key to true elegance," once quipped Coco Chanel. Nothing could more true than for her signature jackets. Taking their somewhat boxy cues from a borrowed-from-the-boys suiting shape and style, Coco designed her wears for the "new breed" of woman. The jackets themselves were innovations at the time--created without traditional interfacing and crafted instead with silk lining quilted directly onto the fabric, resulting in lighter weight, easy breezy, beautiful cover-girl coat. So, to celebrate the grande dame's technological impetuousness, we're showcasing this boucle jacket and dress ensemble--replete with the sort of chicness of form and function for which Chanel has always been known.
Chanel Grey & Silver Boucle Dress & Jacket ensemble. In mint condition and in a size 38. From the Spring 2008 collection. Priced at $3500.
