Tough Love

We have loved leather ever since we saw Diana Rigg as Emma Peel in "The Avengers". Whether it is haute branché like the 1960 Yves Saint Laurent alligator motorcycle jacket or Marlon Brando in The Wild One, a leather jacket is the mark of a bad-boy or bad-girl.

Never one to shy away from the unexpected, Karl Lagerfeld showed quilted motorcycle jackets with big silk and tulle skirts. Tough and tender has always been a good Chanel combination. This amazing motorcycle jacket has familiar Chanelisms: quilting and gold chains. Even the iconic quilted Chanel bag which has been transformed into pockets with detachable gold chain straps. This jacket sold before we even had a chance to put it out but we thought that you would enjoy seeing it.
