In his Metiers Art Collection for next coming automn/winter season Karl Lagerfeld has interpreted traditional costumes in a modern way. The place of origin of the Chanel jacket was allegedly Salzburg in Austria. As the legend says, it has been the jacket of the lift boy in the Hotel Mittersill, which inspired Coco Chancel to tailor her first Chanel jacket. 60 years later Karl Lagerfeld grabs into her treasure trove.
Here some picutres of the collection from the Chanel boutique in St. Tropez. Unfortunately I did not have my Fujifilm XT-1 with me. Therefore the photos are a bit dark. The knickerbocker in jeans I loved most. It is shown under the coat on the first photo.
