2007 Resort Cruise Chanel Runway Documented Textured White Front Lacing Jumpsuit

The twin of this jumpsuit walked the runway for the Resort 2007 collection. It was Look 5 on the runway and was styled with a very casual vibe to it. The show took place in the Grand Central Terminal in New York and stars like Mischa Barton, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, and Maria Bello all sat in the audience. Karl said of the show that season; 'Cruise is all about travelling, so the symbol of the station is a good idea... and I love the space, I always have. I think it is one of the most beautiful spaces in New York.' Its a stunning example of Karl's view on how to do casual while still feeling elevated. And adding a heel instantly makes it more of a evening look. The look is also one of the few showcased on the book 'Chanel: Catwalk' for this season's presentation.

The jumpsuit is made out of a textured cotton that is just a shade or two off of a true stark white. It is cut to skim over the body and feel easy to wear. It is loose and easy through the waist and then the pants skim down from there. Each leg is shaped into the perfect boot cut with just a hint of a flare by the time they reach the hem. Depending on how tall you are they will sit slightly cropped. Top set pockets sit low slung on each hip and two more pockets are set at the back. Each of those are detailed with a silver stud engraved with 'Chanel Paris' spelled out. I love the built in waistband with its chic belt loops and crossed over X at the back. It is like a design detail all on its own and makes wearing a belt optional. The front laces up with three thick white nautical feeling cords down the front. Behind those is a modesty panel that is attached one side and buttons into place on the other. This covers the space between the laces so that you get a hint of sexy but are perfectly OK to move around without exposing anything. I folded that panel back on one shot so you could see how bare a look you could get to you decided to have it made to be removable. The cut of this is perfection and the fabric is exquisite. Inside, the back of the modesty panel, around the neck and around the waist is a finish of silk that is embossed with the famous double C Chanel logo. On the runway the jumpsuit was shown with one of the Chanel belts of the season and you could easily wear it with any belt of your choosing or simply wear it as is and unbelted. Without a belt the line of the eye does not get broken and it has a longer silhouette. It is so versatile and chic. It can be worn with flats for lunch or heels for evening. Excellent condition 

Partially lined as described above and the rest of the jumpsuit is unlined. It laces at the front and there is a hidden set zipper under that. Tagged a Chanel 40 and looks to have been worn very little.
