Need for Tweed

The nubby fabric is revived with shots of metallic thread, pops of leather and flashy feathers…

Coco Chanel first began utilizing her iconic tweed fabric in 1924, inspired not only by the traditional menswear of the time but also by a man, the Duke of Westminster, who often let her borrow his sportswear. Chanel realized that the comfortable, supple fabric could be both sophisticated and versatile and enlisted a Scottish factory to begin producing it for her fashion designs. Ninety years later, a Chanel tweed jacket is still the epitome of style and class. Need an example? Just look at the fall offerings from a range of kids’ brands: The nubby fabric is revived with shots of metallic thread, pops of leather and flashy feathers, proving that Chanel was right when she said, “Fashions fade, but style is eternal.”
