A Contemporary Take on Chanel Boucle Jacket Part 1

Whenever I think of Chanel jackets, the words posh, elegance, mature, socialite and feminine come to mind. Quite the polar opposite to me.  The Chanel jacket still has connotations to the world of rich and famous but I'd like to think that one can wear it however and whenever one chooses to. Despite the ever-changing fashion trends over the last 5 decades, the Chanel tweed boucle jacket continues to remain stylish and popular to this day.

What I love about the likes of Kate Moss, Sienna Miller, Lily Allen and Rachel Zoe is they're not your typical ladylike, refined nor poised beauties. They're rugged with a slant towards rocker and boho chic which appeal to my rather tomboyish dress sense. It's inspiring to see them wear the same Chanel jacket again and again but pairing with simple tees and jeans with a scarf draped almost carelessly around the neck.

I was intrigued by the entire process of making a Chanel jacket by hand. The tailor herself is beautifully dressed in a black Chanel jacket. Hope you enjoy the video as much as I have.

    1. Annie, it's definitely Chanel because she has worn it on many occasions. I'm not sure which collection though. It must be at least 4 years old - ish.

  18. I can't believe you aren't a big TV lover - lol!! Also I think Kate is the best modern Chanel jacket wearer out there - Sienna also does a good job but Kate is just extra cool IMO!
