The X Jacket

100% wool, color charcoal 

X is the common chromosome in both male and female body. The starting point of this project is the Chanel jacket. I was inspired by the androgynous within this iconic item, a mixture of masculinity and femininity. Coco was aim to set women free from corsets and skirts, given them the power to exude elegance while allowing them to move freely. But in 21st century, I would say men has more wearing restiction than women.  I want to continue coco’s spirt of this freely wearing in the X jacket. Studied both men and womens tailoring, this item can be performed by both men and women.
