Nobody understands the importance of showmanship as well as Karl Lagerfeld. For Fall 2014, he took us to market, and the once-in-a-lifetime Chanel Shopping Center experience was one that left all attendees reeling.

This jacket puts every dull, black blazer to shame. It offers the sexy fit of stretchy material, the structure of understated shoulder pads, the bad girl edge of leather, and a pop of electric blue just for kicks. Imagine the dramatic entrance you’d make walking into dinner and removing this jacket, blinding everyone with its vivid blue flair.
