About

A true forever piece this lines and cut of this classic Chanel piece will never go out of style. It can be worn as both a shift dress or you can use it as a layering piece and make it more of a statement coat or jacket. This was shown on the 1996-1997 fall runway belted to give it shape and with gold cuffs layered over the sleeves (see the video below and screen shot - you can catch a quick glimpse of it at about the 3:22 mark in the far right corner). The workmanship is of course impeccable. It is constructed form a fine wool crepe lined in a high grade silk that has those famous double Cs woven into the silk. It is cut very boxy - like an extended classic jacket. Four pockets adorn the front and each is highlighted with one of the wonderful gold tone metal buttons. Those buttons instantly identify this as a Chanel piece and they also adorn each sleeve and button down the front. There are 20 in all so it is almost like wearing a fine piece of Chanel jewelery.
