Chanel dress @ Coco Chanel

This suit was actually made by the New York dress salon of Chez Ninon. It was a copy of a Chanel pink boucle-wool suit trimmed with a navy-blue collar, accesorized with Jackie O's signature pillbox hat. In those days, the First Lady of the U.S.A. was pressured not to wear French-made clothes (for political reasons), and that's why she decided to have her favourite Givenchy, Chanel and Balenciaga designs made by American designers like Oleg Cassini and Chez Ninon.
