Coco Chanel was the one who discovered the functionality of tweed fabric.

This rough unfinished wool, she used for her designs in the 1930s.
After two decades Chanel creates buckled tweed, which is similar, but has its own distinct look. In 1954 the iconic Boucle tweed jacket was born. The boucle tweed jacket was inspired by menswear, straight and fluid, without interfacing and provides absolute freedom of movement. The jacket was lined with silk and has delicate chain that ran along the seam to insure that the jacket falls perfectly. The tweed jacket became the most classic piece in the fashion history. Most amazing and influential women own and wear this fashion classic with grace. It has shined on the catwalks ever since reincarnated and given a new life by the creative director of the fashion house Karl Lagerfeld.
