1980s Chanel Black Silk Top w 4 Leaf Clover Gold Buttons
This Chanel top is from the late eighties and yet it feels fresh and relevant for what is happening on the runways right now. The top is cut with a loose and easy to wear feel, almost a box shape. It almost has a bit of a flapper, twenties feel to it with the pleating and shape. It buttons off set down the front with a series of hidden buttons and to get to those hidden buttons from the center Karl used three gold buttons that angle down from the neckline. Each button has a little four leaf clover embossed onto it which I love. Flat knife pleats run down each side at the front and down the center of the back as well. Another gold 4 leaf clover button sits at each cuff Very well made as one would expect and very Chanel. Excellent condition
Three gold buttons at the neck and then a series of hidden buttons set off side under a pleat. Each cuff closes with a button. Unlined no size tag. The cut is generous so will easily fit a variety of sizes.
