I love witnessing the evolution of Chanel jackets. The classic Chanel jacket is replicated season after season in similar material–just different colors/prints, and different cuts/lengths. Always collarless with round buttons.
Here are my picks from S/S 2010:
The first jacket is more unique to this season alone. The knitted soft yarn webbing comes in bolder colors on other items in the collection. Here is gentle and soft, a nice contrast to the fitted jacket. The jacket to the right is most Chanel–updated with a higher waist. Lily Allen was singing during the show–I guess Lagerfeld wanted a younger vibe.
A Marie Antoinette version on the left and a biker-like hybrid on the right. The black material looks like snakeskin.
The jackets are a comfortable way to look decent.
The collection seemed like Marie Antoinette and her court out frolicking in the country–I also felt a hint of Heidi, that story about a young girl who milks cows in the Swiss Alps.
