Description

Box-cut, double-breasted jacket with elbow-length cuffed sleeves and a self-facing notched collar. Based on the inscription, the collar, sleeves, and cuffs were possibly inspired by the house of Chanel. The sketch also includes a swatch of bright green fabric, which is presumably what was used to make this jacket.
