Tweed embedded in Chanel’s history
Mention tweed and Chanel immediately comes to mind. It was, after all, Coco Chanel who introduced the seriously proper, thick woven woolly fabric that was once the reserve of English gentlemen to the wardrobes of fashionable women in Paris. Today you’ll see the fabric extensively on Chanel’s signature jackets, on their bags, and there was even a season when tweed appeared on the sneakers that were the talk of the town.
Taking it a step even further, and further reinforcing the importance of tweed to the French luxury house, you’ll also find tweed on the latest selection of Boy.Friend timepieces from Chanel. Not the actual fabric of course, but an interpretation of tweed, the watch’s bracelet composed of spun steel wires that are interwoven and then stamped with a tweed pattern.
The end result? Another beautiful timepiece from Chanel Horlogerie, with a bracelet that not only looks like tweed, but will also sit most comfortably as it adjusts to the natural contours of your wrist. Available in 2 sizes, the larger MM (26.7 mm by 34.6 mm) and the smaller PM (21.5 mm by 27.9 mm), both of which will come with refined steel cases set atop jet black watch dials. For those, however, who prefer a little more bling, there’s the one that comes with a full diamond bezel for maximum brilliance.
