Need For Tweed

The tweed revamp collection for this Fall is amazing and a must have fashion investment. Tweed was actually produced into fashion for women’s between the nineteenth century as well as 1910 as fitted jackets over a lengthy skirts.

We all associate the famous material to The Chanel jacket. It’s an ‘investment dressing that will fetch from £2,000 and up. Chanel jackets have been influenced by men’s cardigans, launching ladies from restricted corsets. ‘A Chanel jacket is made for a woman who moves’ Coco said. In 1954 Coco redesigned her signature jacket using her favourite tweed.


How to tell if it’s a genuine Chanel tweed jacket. The buttons may change from season to season and jacket to jacket. It could be brass,  jet, or even diamanté.  A Chanel jacket is always lined in silk, subtly woven with the CC logo.

Wear Tweed

How to wear tweed this winter. For me this versatile woolen fabric looks best in a more opulent style setting. The current Tweed collections presented on the 2012 runways are truly too die for. This fall,make that tweed fashion investment and be inspired by the current tweed trend. Don’t be afraid of colour and create your own Channel look no matter what age you are.

Team your tweed jacket with leather and you certainly will give it an edgy twist. Check out my Youtube video on Tweed. Jigsaw UK & Massimo Dutti are doing a fabulous pink tweed jacket this winter.
