Lot Essay

This Chanel Couture bouclé skirt suit was designed by Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel during her time as director of her eponymous brand. Chanel began designing her tweed suits as a rebuke to the restrictive and romantic notions of femininity in fashion. The chain weighted hem was invented by Chanel to allow the jacket to lay flawlessly on the body, the lion head buttons a nod to her zodiac sign, Leo. The Chanel tweed suit has become the pinnacle of luxurious craft and rarity in fashion.
