Simple 1990s Chanel Dress In A Deep Brown Silk & Wool
Karl Lagerfeld is a genius when it comes to combining cut and fabric and this Chanel dress showcases just that. It is made from a fine, light wool and silk mix fabric that is woven into a square grid pattern that gives it a very unusual texture. The color is a deep, rich chocolate and the cut is deceptively simple. The fabric he chose for this dress has the same properties as the iconic boucle that the house regularly uses in that is bias cut in all four directions. This means that it moves easily over the body with no restrictions while at the same time always keeping its shape. It is cut to be sleeveless with a V neckline. The waist drops low and the fabric skims over the body in a sleek column from the shoulder to the floor. Pockets sit on each hip and each has that distinctive Chanel logo button adoring it. The back has a slit so you can walk easily in the slim cut skirt. Excellent condition.
Fully interlined in a fine brown silk crepe and closes with a back hidden set zipper. Hidden pockets on each hip each with a Chanel button. Extra Chanel button included. Beautifully constructed
