Chanel Vintage Haute-Couture Numbered Red Black Ivory Wool Jacket
The singularity of an haute couture Chanel jacket is difficult to fully comprehend. Made from a luxuriously toothy wool, this jacket was constructed by an expert seamstress under the mindful oversight of Karl Lagerfeld in Chanel’s Parisian atelier. Following in the tradition of Coco herself, the jacket is made to fit comfortably, like a sweater. A silk chiffon lining provides light structure to the loose weave of the fashion fabric, skillfully enclosing all seams and making the jacket as beautiful inside as out.
Five decorative enamel buttons with wool insets sit at the center front with a functional set of silk-covered snaps hidden beneath. Four front pockets, elegantly attached with invisible hand-stitching, detail the front bodice. The signature Chanel gold chain at the bottom hem weights the jacket down for a perfect fit. Edged in a hand-embroidery, this jacket is authenticated by its minimal haute couture label and represents the absolute finest materials and construction. It is both classic and contemporary, looking chic with anything from pencil skirts to denim jeans.
