This pretty jacket was designed by Karl Lagerfeld for the Fall 1997 collection. We love a modern take on a classic design invented by Gabrielle Chanel. The collarless cut, the signature four front pockets, intricately braided trims, chain at the hem, and of course, the special interlocking-C logo buttons make this piece a timeless find. The wool tweed fabric with a blend of mohair is made to last and will look new with regular maintenance.
If you are a fan of a happy lavender-pink shade, this piece would be perfect to pair with jeans (our favorite combo) and wear throughout the cold fall-winter months.

The jacket is lined in 100% silk. The top closure is two buttons, connected with a chain, similar to cufflinks. 

Size: size label reads FR38, suitable for sizes FR38 and FR40.

Color: blue, yellow, pink, purple, fuchsia that give an overall light pink-lavender shade.

Condition: the exterior is in very god condition, light wear throughout. The interior lining is in in good condition with moderate wear, and faint discoloration at underarms. There is light wear to the lining seams, no rips. Overall the piece is in very good condition. Please refer to the images for details. 

When we condition jackets made of wool tweed removing the piling is one of the most crucial elements in reviving the fabric's condition. This piece in particular took us 4 hours of handwork. From using a hand debobbler to carefully removing the remaining piling with scissors. This is the RARCHIVE difference, we take pride in taking the best care of the jackets we offer in our store.
