The iconic CoCo Channel tweed suit. In junior high and high school I always dreamed of owning one. Which is funny, because I wore jeans almost every day. I'd steal shirts from my brother's closet or wear one of my many white v-neck tshirts, and I wore Dr Marten's and Birkenstocks (with socks).
When we escaped the Texas Panhandle for the summer and went to Houston - I would see my mother's Neiman Marcus catalogs come to life. Beautiful women, doing important things, in the best clothes.
It's a long coat not cropped, and there's a collar - oh, it's not tweed either. You might not see it, but I do. There's something about the texture of this kantha, this coat - that's reminds me of Channel Tweed. Threads are tied off when they start and stop - not hidden like you typically see on a kantha. It creates this "nubby" look/feel.
With this coat, styled just right, with great hair and makeup - I would feel like the downtown girls that I envied growing up.
C111 is a midweight piece with alot of texture. Reminds me of a woven textile. It has a structured shape.
Dry Cleaning or Spot Cleaning is recommended.
If you choose to launder your blanket coat, we suggest hand washing or washing on a delicate cycle.
Do NOT machine dry.
Every coat is one of a kind. Made from vintage fabrics stitched by hand, your piece may have markings or worn areas that we find make our coats even more storied and unique.
