BOUCLE BABY!

Boucle: a fabric comprised of woven yarn with a loops and often a nubby surface. Also--the signature Chanel fabric used to comprised their signature jacket. A classic Chanel must-have piece is a black boucle blazer/jacket. This piece from Fall 2006 is good example. Classic in its cut and shape, this jacket also features "ribbon" boucle detailing with gold metallic trim and raw edging details. Of course, if you disagree, you could come to sale and pick you perfect LBB (little black blazer--duh!)
