 The Chanel Jacket Stories Jetteke
My first memory of Chanel jackets goes back to when I was about four years old. Of course, at that time, I had no idea what the brand Chanel was, but one of my aunts used to wear it often and I always felt mesmerized by and attracted to her beautiful clothing and accessories. About 15 years ago I bought my first jacket, in Belgium. When I saw the soft pink fabric hanging in the store, my heart skipped a beat. I found it expensive, but had to have it. Since then I started a small collection. At KERN1 I bought two vintage pieces, a long black jacket with gold statement buttons, that can be worn as a coat or a dress. And an ecru jacket with black trim. I wear my jackets daily. Both at day- and nighttime. For an evening event, I just add some extra jewelry and I am ready to go. The jackets are part of me and I will wear them forever. If you see an 80-year-old lady on the street with a Chanel jacket, that will be me.
