The Tweed Jacket

A tweed jacket is a timeless piece that every (elegant) woman should have in her wardrobe.

Elegant, practical and so versatile that it is suitable for almost every occasion, you can easily wear it to the office but also to the dinner or a cocktail party, this iconic piece doesn’t have any age, style and season limitations.

Did you know how Coco Chanel discovered her iconic Tweed?

Her use of the now legendary fabric was not only inspired by menswear, but by a man—and a Duke no less. After borrowing sportswear from her beau, the Duke of Westminster, Chanel realised the comfortable, supple fabric had a sophisticated quality that would lend itself well to her designs. Beginning in 1924, Chanel enlisted a Scottish factory to produce her iconic tweed fabrics for everything from sportswear to suits and coats. She’d choose colours she was inspired by from the Scottish countryside, bringing back leaves and bits of earth to her manufacturers.
