Amazing Fall 1994 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Look 20 Deep Blue Black Cashmere Flare Jacket

The Fall 1994 Chanel show by Karl Lagerfeld is perhaps one of the most well known of his older shows. This is the show where Karl introduced many of his now iconic faux fur looks. In that show he also did a series of these great little coats that were shown with hats and wide belts on the runway. The twin of this one walked the runway for Look 20 and I love that this gives you the chance to see it on a body. It is so so good. 

The colour of this jacket seems to be in extremely dark blue that looks black depending on the lighting. Every time I decide that it is one colour I see it in a slightly different light or from a different angle and I change my mind again. The jacket itself is stunning. It feels like it is made out of a cashmere or perhaps a cashmere mix and is very soft to the touch. It is a more structured piece and the lines of it are amazing. The collar is wide and notched and the sleeves are long. Each sleeve ends in a cuff that is highlighted by four gold Chanel logo embossed buttons. I love that each buttonhole on the cuffs are functional which shows the high level of construction in the piece. The vertical seams of the jacket are highlighted by top-stitched thin panels of in same fabric. These circle all the way around the waist and is done on all of the main seaming on the entire bodice. It buttons up down the front with nine more of those gorgeous Chanel logo buttons. The skirting is phenomenal and when you lay it out flat you realize that it is a full true circle skirt if not a little beyond a circle. This gives it that incredible flare that you see and incredible movement as you move. On the runway they cinched in the waist with wide belts and if you wanted to re-create that look you could easily add your own. The workmanship on this coat fantastic.  It is everything you look for in a vintage Chanel piece. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a deep blue silk lining and closes down the front as shown. The buttons on the pockets and cuffs are all functional. Light padding in each shoulder. Tagged a vintage Chanel 40.
