So this is why a classic black Chanel jacket costs so, so many dollars. (And why I’ll never own one). This two-minute video is made by Chanel and filmed in Paris. It’s the story of the iconic little black jacket – how it comes to life from sketching to cutting, sewing to steaming.
When designer Karl Lagerfield speaks of the Chanel jacket, he says: “It is one of the symbols that defines the style of Chanel. There are things that never go out of fashion, jeans, a white blouse, and a Chanel jacket.”
