Born in Britain in the early nineteenth century, the blazer is one of the oldest and most rigorous uniforms of all time, universally recognized as a chief symbol of elegance, but still easy to adapt according to the occasion.
In 1825, members of the Lady Margaret boating Club of the University of Cambridge, wore a scarlet-red single-breasted jacket, emblem of the club, hence the term blazer, referred to the bright fire-like color itself.
A second version of the birth of the term blazer narrates that, in 1837, the captain of the frigate HMS BLAZER, ship belonging to the Royal Navy, on the occasion of the royal visit by Queen Victoria, ordered for his crew a uniform suited to the event and hence came the name.
What was created was a blue double-breasted jacket with gold buttons depicting the coat of arms of the frigate. Since then, the blazer was adopted as the formal attire for sporting activities such as horseback riding, cricket, hunting, tennis and sailing.
In the years following the World Wars, in the fashion world there wavered a general fancy for a more masculine style, of which Gabrielle Chanel was no doubt the reference point taking possession of the blazer, but rearranging it to the feminine silhouette.
