Spectacular Cruise 2007 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Chanel Logo Print Dress & Stripe Cashmere Cardigan

This dress and cardigan set has come to me direct from one of my avid Couture and Chanel collectors. It is an exceptional piece for the collector and is extremely special.  These pieces were sold separately in the Chanel boutiques and it was difficult for clients to be able to purchase both pieces because they were not sent to all boutiques. My client did manage to get the two pieces and it is lovely to have them together. Two versions of this look were shown on the runway and then this dress was produced as well and it falls between those two in length. This one has the extra added provenance that a version was also shot on Kate Moss that season. I love it as a set and I love that you can wear the dress or the cardigan on its own which extends their life as pieces in your wardrobe even more.

The dress is a work of art and the silk chiffon used to make it is some of the finest, lightest chiffon I have seen. The fabric is notoriously difficult to work with and with all the intricate detailing putting this together with the lace would have taken a ton of man hours especially at this level of workmanship. It is just spectacular. The silk has a slight texture to it which adds to the interest of the dress. It is covered in various renditions of the Chanel logo and most have an almost graffiti like feel to them. I love the pops of pink and blue that this adds. The tiny cap sleeves have a layer of lace over them and sit on the top of your shoulder. The neckline scoops down at the front and the silk is gathered up into a knot at the base of the scoop. A wide panel of lace wraps around the waist and at the back the lace extends from the sleeves all the way down to the back seam where the zipper starts. There is a open slit from the top of the neck to where the zipper begins. The skirt falls from under that band of lace at the waist and falls in a swoop of feather light silk chiffon to a raw hem. Another wide band of lace circles around the skirt just above the hem. This beautifully ties the whole dress together. The movement this dress has once on is incredible. The sweater is equally incredible. It is made out of 100% cashmere and is a beautiful striped design in a deep dusky pink an ivory and a blue. It has no collar and it buttons down the front with two pockets on each hip. I love the ribbing at the end of each cuff and around the bottom of the sweater. Pink enamel and silver double C embossed dome buttons run down the front and sit on each pocket. It is the perfect contrasting complement to the print of the dress. This is a phenomenal Chanel set. Excellent condition with a minor note below.

The dress is lined with the same fabric through the bodice and a black silk chiffon for the skirt. It closes at the back with hidden set zipper and a hook and eye at the top of the neck. The cardigan buttons to close down the front. I see the tiniest bit of stress to the fabric and a tiny repair at the edge of the arms. Please see the photo after the label shot.
