I do see a LOT of Chanel in the course of my travels. Not to mention the privileged excavations of some of the best stock cedar lined closets in the world. But, whether appraising and admiring the culmination of Chanel goodies from some of the chicest ladies I know, or even plunking down in my own humble closet, there is ONE jacket that EVERYONE has on their MUST HAVE rail–Karl’s 1995A black and white ‘Snowflake’ jacket. Retail even in Fall of ’95 was $3500. A signature blend of black boucle and white jots with cuffed sleeves and those requiste CC/logo black with white buttons:
Chic with EVERYTHING, this is the Grail of Karl’s Quest for Mme Coco–or so votes his army of fans armed with their Titanium American Express ‘BLACK’ cards. Of course, at this point, these jackets are not available in ANY Boutique. Happy Hunting.
