Coco Chanel 1916’s Jersey

Char Saint

Who knew that jersey fabrics were limited to underwear? Well apparently Coco did, and she gave zero fu*ks, as well as zero chill for the fashion industry’s norms, protocols or procedures.

In 1916, she basically said 🖕🏾screw the fashion industry and made jersey fabric exactly what it is today. Her use of the fabric came from her love for modernity and comfort but it was also the key reason her classic suit transcended very single moment that encompassed the 20th (twentieth) century.
