This one-of-a-kind, hand-embellished jean jacket is created using upcycled authentic Chanel and Dior ribbons from France. Sparkling crystals and beautiful woven silver and black ribbons complement the designer ribbons. On the top left-hand side is a lovely sparkling grouping of embroidered flowers. With shimmering sequins and metallic threads, this is the centerpiece of the entire jacket.
The jacket is also upcycled. Upcycled fashion involves turning old garments and textiles into new clothing of better quality and environmental value.
When living in Paris, I would try and follow the trends of what the French girls were wearing. I was in awe of their effortless style. I would carefully purchase a piece of clothing that the French girls were wearing for myself and hope that I fit in. one such piece of clothing that all French girls seemed to have was a jean jacket that they would wear on their “causal days.”
This line of jean jackets comes from my great memories of searching for the perfect jean jacket so that I could also fit in as an “effortlessly stylish French girl.” While I am still unsure if I ever reached that status, I now have a collection of jackets that would make my inner Parisian girl jealous.
After living in Paris, France, for 5 years and becoming certified in Haute Couture Beadwork and Embroidery from one of Chanel's prestigious workshops, I wanted to design a clothing line that offered details usually only seen on the couture catwalks of fashion week.
Each piece in the jean jacket collection is one of a kind and will never be reproduced. Handcrafted with traditional couture embellishment techniques, this jacket is a unique piece to add to your wardrobe. Size Small.
