Chanel wool tweed coat, 1970s
A Chanel classic is an enduring icon of the designer's vision, one that never goes out of style. This pre-Lagerfeld wool tweed coat has the effortless elegance for which Chanel was known.
The coat is fashioned from herringbone wool tweed plaid and is lined with cocoa silk. The enchanting—and unusual—pastel peach color will be admired. The impeccable Chanel cut and tailoring make the coat a timeless classic.
Here is the famous Chanel "look": elegant, comfortable, and practical. As Coco Chanel used to say, "Fashion fades; only style remains." The inspired use of pale peach for outerwear tells us the wearer belongs to the aristocracy of style, a special cadre of fashion initiates whose smart attire always attracts admiring glances.
