Before Gabrielle Chanel, tweed was but a masculine fabric from Scotland – quickly becoming a synonymous signifier of stylish, chic women everywhere after the French designer worked her magic. Fast forward to today and Chanel has unveiled yet another luxurious offering – this time with gold, diamonds and precious stones while also reimagining the house’s symbolic tweed. Enter Tweed de Chanel, the luxury house’s first high jewellery collection dedicated to the much-adored twill-cloth of the classic Chanel suit.
The collection boasts 45 pieces, from necklaces to earrings. Working with the structure and natural textures of tweed, the result is an uncharacteristically soft jewellery line-up – all of which is made exclusively by hand. Below, a closer look.
