Exceptional runway documented pre-Fall 2013 Chanel tartan coat from the Metiers d’Arts collection. Inspired by “the brutal romance of Scotland and the imagined meeting of Mary, Queen of Scots and Coco Chanel – two fashion queens,” said Karl Lagerfeld. The show was presented at Linlithgow Palace, the birthplace of Mary, Queen of Scots and this exact coat is seen here in Look 6 from the collection.

The tartan mix is a warm burgundy, indigo blue and black tweed that has been box pleated at the lower skirt to mimic the pleating arrangements of a Scottish kilt. The oversized trench design is faux double breasted with magnificent pearl and purple enamel buttons reminiscent of a shield. The button design is mirrored at the four front pockets, lapels and the cuffs. There is a sash tie belt at the waist, and it is half lined in silk.

In great pre-owned condition with no issues, the sizing tag has been removed but we feel it best corresponds to a French 40, US 8 or UK 12. The Circa team has all tried this on and in our opinion, unless you are tall, this is too large for UK size 8, or US 4 and below. It’s a great fit from UK size 10, US 6 upwards and will comfortably go to a UK 16 or US 12. A long trench coat from Chanel is close to £12,000 new and our client recalls that this was over £10,000 when purchased. A great investment purchase from a renowned collection.
