Khaki-chic: the timeless military jacket
From the YSL “Saharienne” immortalized by muses like Veruschka and Betty Catroux to Balmain’s new take on it, we are all falling for the military jacket. Call it Khaki/Utilitary/Military or Veste Militaire – à la Française -, it’s a modern classic and a must-have on everyone’s closet. I find it so versatile and easy to wear, it goes with everything: “à la cool” it can be worn over a loose Isabel Marant Ts and jeans, or for a more chic occasion, as an evening jacket to play down a little black dress… Loose or fitted, accessorized with a couture belt, the options are endless!
