i guess this is legal because it's for sale by a reputable store. $1,320. is this an authentic chanel scarf converted into a jacket? it comes in "chanel green" and "chanel black". BUT is sold under another designer name. crazy, huh?

Yes, crazy and cool -IF they used an authentic scarf. I'm only saying that because where I used to work, there was a designer who came to show some samples, and one of them was a Chanel "scarf" top -but she blatantly said it was fake, although it didn't look SUPER fake, KWIM?

Anyways, were you planning to get this jacket? I've always thought about buying a Chanel or Hermes scarf and sewing it into something else... but didn't want to risk ruining a $500 scarf ;)

janny - when i first saw it i thought. oh my...what have they done! but after a while it doesn't look so bad. if it is in fact authentic chanel. i don't think i can pull of that look, though. the shiny black leggings throw it off!! haha

^^^ LOL, I know... because the jacket has a baggy shape -and plus the shiny leggings, at first I was thinking it was something a boxer would wear!

How interesting!! I was actually kind of wondering what people thought of using authentic Chanel items to make things- if it was a yay or nay....like sewing a Chanel scarf onto a non-Chanel shirt around the neck area in a pre-tied bow, sewing parts of a Chanel scarf onto the back pockets of jeans, etc...nothing gaudy, just adding a little touch of class to something. Like, if you alter it, do you still consider it authentic and valuable or have you just desecrated it?

I personally don't really like it...and I wouldn't sew or alter my Chanel scarves...just a personal thing I guess.

If any of my scarves get (god forbid!) torn or otherwise damaged, it could be a good use for the undamaged parts! I'll remember this for the future. I wouldn't try to sell the items I made with it, though.
