Fall In Love With Our Florence Jacquard Blazer

Fall In Love With Our Florence Jacquard Blazer

When it comes to my design process, I always start by looking for beautiful fabrics.  I have always loved and appreciated beautifully woven textiles and the workmanship that goes into designing and producing them.  When looking for this kind of quality, you can never go wrong with fabrics that are made in Italy.  Italians have a very rich history in textile weaving that goes back centuries.  When I am shopping for Jacket Society jacket and blazer fabrics, I always look for the best designs plus quality and most of the time I am drawn to Italian fabrics.

This is why I decided to name a lot of my fall blazers after Italian cities as all these fabrics are from Italy.  Today I am showing you the new Florence jacquard blazer which is one of the richest and most beautiful jacquard fabrics I have seen in a long time. Here is a little history about jacquard fabrics for you.

A jacquard fabric is woven on a special loom called a jacquard loom which was invented around 1801 in France by Joseph Marie Jacquard.  The word jacquard refers to a type of weave which is usually a fabric with an intricate and elaborate and sometimes large patterns woven or knitted on the jacquard loom. By creating this machine, Joseph Jaquard simplified and automated the mechanisms that controlled the patterning of textiles by using punch cards laced together.  These were the beginnings of using machinery rather than manual labor to make jaquard textiles and today a lot of this is done on computer operated machines.

Looking at this fabric I immediately wanted to style the blazer in a very lady-like and feminine way, therefore I decided to wear it with a pencil skirt, multi strands of necklaces and my red pumps.  But then I always love a bit of masculine flare mixed with the feminine, so I added the red pocket square even though it is in a floral pattern.  I am actually wearing two separate necklaces here as I love mixing necklaces together to create a new look and I thought these two mix really well together.  Note that the one necklace with the stone and chain fringe can be worn two ways, as the stone is charcoal on one side and pale pink on the other side.  I am showing you the charcoal side but you can see the pink side in one of the pictures below.

You can purchase the two necklaces here and here.  Our Florence jacquard blazer can be purchased here.

What do you think of our Florence jacquard blazer, I hope you like it as much as I do?

    Thank you for joining TBT Fashion link up and hope to see you next week.



    1. Hi Alice,
      Thank you so much!


  13. I think you styled that lovely jacket very well. It looks Italian chic with this pencil skirt (gosh you have a good figure. And if you don’t then this outfit makes me think that). The shoes are great, I am searching for red (patent) leather pumps myself, but I can only find ones on which I cannot walk or ones which are a bit dowdy.
    And that bag! .. Hmm yes, thought I recognized the H. Lucky you.


    1. Hi Greetje,
      Thank you so much, the bag was a gift to me over 20 years ago and it is a special piece for sure.
