The thing about Chanel and Karl is that they make so many things women want. I know very few women that don't have a 2.55 at the back of their minds (and a secret saving-up fund) and now this look into their classic black jackets has me thinking: "Should one be on my wishlist?". Why this sudden focus? Well, pure advertising from Chanel's side really, they are launching a book about these black jackets that will have pictures of 100 people wearing different versions of the jacket. Styling and pictures are done by Karl and Caroline Roitfeld, there is even a picture of her in the book. But back to the video, it really does show how much work and care goes into one single jacket. There is something alluring and fantastic about handmade garments when we are getting used to the mass production that is the high street and it makes me want to get creative and make something myself.
