When it comes to quilting, Coco Chanel pretty much cornered the market. Her signature style is classic, sophisticated, and beloved by all Snobs. But quilting has come a long way since she designed her first flap bags and tweed jackets. See what designers are doing with the look today…
Nasty Gal Quilted Stud Sweatshirt: Black vegan leather and studs are about as hardcore as a sweatshirt gets. Wear the puffer over a pair of tight shorts or pants to balance out its volume. On Nasty Gal for $78.
Christopher Raeburn Quilted Front Raglan Pullover: Inject a little shine into your quilting with this golden-paneled sweatshirt. At Barneys New York for $375.
3.1 Phillip Lim Quilted Leather T-Shirt: Phillip Lim quilts his biker-inspired tee with the image of a phoenix. Pretty appropriate – it would give new life to any old pair of jeans! On NET-A-PORTER for $1,400.
Emilio Pucci Quilted Leather Jacket: This intricately quilted Pucci is the ladylike answer to tough girl moto jackets. On NET-A-PORTER for $5,690.
IRO Maiden Leather-Trimmed Quilted Crepe Jacket: Elegant quilting gets an edge – a leather-trimmed one, to be exact! Between the classic shape and frayed hem, you strike a balance between Coco and moto. On NET-A-PORTER for $790.
Roland Mouret Keiko Quilted Lamé and Stretch-Crepe Top: This lightly quilted lamé number was inspired by Parisien fashion in the ‘80s. Should I honor the inspiration and wear this to Paris Fashion Week? There’s a coordinating skirt, but I’m thinking pants! On NET-A-PORTER for $1,130.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Roxy Quilted Faux Leather Skirt: Zippers playfully decorate this mini, which comes conveniently with pockets. Pair it with a tank and sexiest stilettos. On Shopbop for $198.
Bop Basics Quilted Faux Leather Leggings: Save your plain black leggings for yoga class. These quilted ones are just as comfy (only the front is faux leather) and far more interesting. On Shopbop for $88.
