From ‘Jean Frost Jackets’:

The jackets in this book reflect the great influence that Coco Chanel has had on my designs. The Trilling jacket was inspired by a design by Karl Lagerfeld, who ruled the House of Chanel after Coco’s death. With a bolero shape that just skims the waist, the jacket is embellished by four pockets and buttons on the cuffs. The knitted fabric has a woven appearance, yet a supple drape. Together, these features epitomize the softly tailored style of the Chanel jacket.
