From the early 1980s, we estimate this piece comes from the Spring 1983 collection. Truly a rare find as this color-way was made exclusively for Creed's - a now defunct luxury department store in Canada (think Bergdorf's and Le Bon Marche). This piece is cut in a creme colored wool tweed with streaks of black, red and cream lines throughout. Special attention goes to the layered zigzag edge trim - made of soft leather. Have you seen anything like that before? We haven't either!
The piece is traditionally fully lined in silk fabric and is in very good condition for its age.. A perfect find for a true Chanel collector. 

Size: size label removed, fits like a FR38-40

Condition: Jacket exterior in good condition, moderate wear to leather trim. Jacket lining in good condition, light discoloration at armholes. See photos for reference. 

Fabric composition: label removed, feels like a wool blend.
