Founded in 1909 as a millinery, The House of CHANEL has grown its product line to include dresses, coats, jackets, vests, skirts, pants, tops, jewelry, hats, scarves, and perfume. Known for its CHANEL No. 5, one of the best-selling perfumes in the world, and for its little black dresses and tweed coats, this haute couture house also releases two to three ready-to-wear lines per year. You can find gently used Chanel jackets and vests for women for sale at eBay.From what materials does CHANEL craft coats, jackets, and vests for women in vintage eras?
Tweed has been a go-to material for the design house since Coco Chanel founded it. Karl Lagerfeld continued the traditional design when he assumed the position of lead designer in 1983 but also introduced denim and leather into the jacket designs. You will find unstructured and free-flowing designs without structured bodices. You will also find several pieces in fine wool.Typical CHANEL styles and colors
The 2019 winter collection features coats, jacket, and vests for women in winter tweed using a graphic houndstooth pattern that hearkens back to its vintage pieces. Do not confuse these current pieces with the vintage houndstooth coats from the designer also available on eBay. Vintage coat designs typically consist of trench coats, parkas, and windbreakers although some Nehru jackets are also in circulation. Coco Chanel favored designing in black with occasional black and gray prints, but Lagerfeld enjoys bright colors. His designs tend to feature hot pink and red with occasional forays into purple and deep blue. The design house went through a military-inspired period, and a handful of collections feature pieces mostly of khaki. Coats and jackets with piping typically use white or cream for the accent color. You can round out your outfit with a sophisticated used CHANEL bag and scarf also for sale on eBay.In what size range does CHANEL design?
You can easily find a new or used CHANEL coat, jacket, or vest in your size for sale on eBay, but older vintage pieces only come in smaller sizes. The design house introduced a plus-size line in 2010 of select pieces with sizes ranging from 10 to 20. Its typical ready-to-wear lines offer sizes 0 to 8. CHANEL clothing from 2009 and prior years would only go up to size 8. CHANEL also designs additional lines for juniors, petite, and tall women. The petite line ranges from 4P to 16P. The junior’s sizes range from XS to XL sizing.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Chanel.
