Chanel Black Red Plaid Cropped Wool Jacket Runway 1988
The Chanel jacket has been a symbol for the world-renowned haute couture house since its founding and has been so iconic that it has a special place in the idea of French couture. With this still as inspiration, the Chanel Fall/Winter 1988 collection remixed this historic style with undeniably British elements in an Anglomania combination. Done in a primary red and black wool tweed check, this version of the Chanel jacket takes a refined spin on both English tailoring and subculture through its details and fit.
A V-neckline into an imitation lapel front compliments the rounded shoulders shaped from the raglan sleeves. Gold “CC”-logoed buttons on the front allude to a double-breasted suit while the cropped hem and gold-buckled belted back give an edgier biker vibe. The bold color and the curated style combination of this jacket make it a versatile piece that can add a modern touch to professional attire or an everyday look. It can be seen in the images above on that season’s runway.
