First debuted in 1954 by French fashion designer, Coco Chanel, THE Little Black Jacket has evolved over the years but its signature features remain –> a boxy jacket made of bouclé (a fuzzy looped yarn wool) or tweed fabric, braided trim, two or four pockets, a gold chain placed along the inside bottom edge, fully lined and quilted with silk charmeuse, with or without the double “C” logo buttons, and 2-part or 3-part sleeves attached to armholes by hand stitching.
“There are things in fashion that never go out of style: jeans, a white t-shirt and a Chanel Jacket.” – Karl Lagerfeld, Head Creative Director of the fashion house Chanel
