Chanel Navy Crème Wool Check Gold Button Cardigan Jacket, 1980s
The 1980s were simultaneously a time of fun-loving glamour and a newfound appreciation for classic lines and tailoring. During this time, the House of Chanel relied on traditional patterns such as stripes and checks in neutral colors to create timeless pieces that would appeal to both socialites and career women alike.
Presumably from the Fall/Winter 1984 collection, this cardigan-style Chanel jacket is done in a crème and midnight navy blue wool boucle check. Careful seaming of this jacket gives it an exquisite fit with standard darts defining the waist and a semi-raglan sleeve creating a beautifully rounded shoulder.
The jacket is subtly yet impactfully accented by bias details forming the collar and center front binding, the cuffs, and the welts of the four front pockets. Versatile and seasonless, this vintage Chanel jacket can be easily styled as a professional jacket or a casual cover-up. With a neutral colorway and classic pattern, the options are virtually endless!
