Spring 1992 Chanel Runway Lookbook Ad Campaign Patent Ribbon Jacket

I love finding such a well documented piece. A version of this jacket was not only shown on the runway for the Spring 1992 season, but it was also featured in the Lookbook and the ad campaign that year. In addition, we found a photo of Claudia Schiffer wearing a version of the jacket with Karl Lagerfeld himself at the Vogue 100th part in April of that year.

This version is a more cropped one and I think I actually love it more. It feels more of the moment for what is happening in fashion right now and the shape is very flattering once on. The color of the jacket is a deep navy and this allows the white parts of it to pop off the blue but without the starkness that it would have if it was done in a black. The ribbon trim that you see is woven through the trim and it is a soft white patent fabric so it has a slight bit of a sheen to it that is really pretty. This runs all the way around the edges. The buttons are gorgeous  Each is a clear disc that has a little 3 dimensional, signature Camellia flower attached to its top. It is like having little bits of jewelry already in place on your jacket. Each sleeve ends in a flared cuff and two more of those gorgeous buttons finish each sleeve. I love it. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in a fine navy silk and closes with the buttons you see at the front. Each cuff has functional buttonholes. Light padding in each shoulder. Hand finishes throughout. This one has no size tag but I would guess it to be approximately a Chanel 42. Please check the actual measurements below. It appears to have been worn very little if at all.
