Christie Tyler’s Three Takes on Chanel’s Iconic Jacket

 Few things are as synonymous with CHANEL as the classic tweed jacket. From the beginning, Gabrielle Chanel spoke about the now-iconic outerwear piece and its value in the evolution of womenswear. “I really care about women,” she would say, “and I wanted to dress them in suits that make them feel at ease, but that still emphasize femininity.” Fast forward 50-plus years, and the jacket still sits at the center of CHANEL’s ethos, reworked by Artistic Director of CHANEL Fashion Collections Virginie Viard for her debut 2019/20 Cruise Collection.

To show off Viard’s multitude of propositions for the current season, including two, four, and six pocket numbers, with or without collars, with shoulders soft, rounded, or square, short and long cuts, single and double breasted, and sometimes belted with chains, we tapped @nycbambi’s Christie Tyler, who was in Paris for the maison’s Spring-Summer 2020 runway show. From the streets to the Tuileries, Tyler proved that the jacket should be a mainstay in every woman’s wardrobe, this season and beyond.
