CHANEL TWEED

VOGUE Australia - - BEAUTY -

Coco Chanel’s af­fair in the 1920s with the sec­ond Duke of West­min­ster, Eng­land’s rich­est man at the time, re­sulted in more than just wag­ging tongues. It was af­ter Chanel bor­rowed his fish­ing and hunt­ing at­tire, made from Scot­tish carded wool, that her sig­na­ture tweed fab­ric – and, sub­se­quently, the loosely struc­tured Chanel jacket – was born. Dur­ing his multi-decade ten­ure at Chanel, Karl Lager­feld has reimag­ined the tweed jacket ev­ery which way, but for au­tumn he re­turned to its in­trin­si­cally haute-bour­geois roots, send­ing out re­fined suits with match­ing bags and strings of pearls, a look that’s icon­i­cally Coco. Chanel jacket, $12,420, skirt, $3,990, ear­rings, $1,400, neck­lace, $2,750, beaded neck­lace, $2,990, belt, $2,200, and bag, $5,350.
