I admire Coco Chanel’s life story and work and have been wanting a Chanel jacket for a while. There were times when I walked into the Chanel boutique to try on a jacket, but to spend 6000 euro on a new Chanel jacket, I just couldn’t. When I saw my jacket on KERN1 I knew right away it was very ‘me’. I consulted with my friend Jetteke van Lexmond and she told me to go for it.

After purchasing my jacket, deciding what would be the first time to wear it was a quite a thing for me. The jacket was hanging in my closet waiting to be worn. That special time came when I was scheduled to do an important presentation for Keune (hair cosmetics). I decided that this was the right moment. When I am on stage it is very important for me to feel comfortable, but at the same time the audience needs something interesting to look at. I chose to wear the jacket closed as it is even more of a statement. It is interesting to see how people react when you wear a Chanel jacket. They notice and are impressed. After using it for the first time, I feel that I am getting more comfortable to take it out of the closet and I am ready to wear it for many more years to come.
