It grew into fashion in the 1930s, Koko Chanel was said to love this model, but no one managed to find confirmation of these rumors. Tweed jacket brought her fame in the greater half of Paris. Christian Dior is much more likely to have invented the model of this famous coat, because at that time there was a peak of popularity of the iconic French designer.
