Sorry Coco, we still prefer leather over tweed "There are things in fashion that never go out of style: jeans, a white shirt, and a Chanel jacket" says Karl Lagerfeld, fashion director of Chanel. In this short film released by the French fashion brand, we get a better understanding of how the iconic Chanel jacket came to be, and how it has since evolved. From the sounds of it, we have Gabrielle Chanel to thank for the death of corset-like dresses. Hooray for breathing and moving around easily! Check out Chanel’s newest video “The Jacket” below.
