Channelling


Coco Chanel was a ground breaker in many ways including the promoting of trousers for women and black not just for funerals but the little Chanel suit is perhaps as iconic as the pearls and gold strands....the jacket was a chunky boxy affair that added easy structure....these babies are the more 80s variety of boxy leaving loads of room for layering....Durban style.
