Early 1980s Chanel Silk Drawstring Top & Pleated Skirt Set

A chic set from the legendary house of Chanel is one you will wear over and over. Both pieces are superbly simple in cut, and yet have a touch of sexy innocence to them. The colors are a mix of a deep blue with green and red checks set over the silk - one the skirt this is done in stacked boxes and on the top set on the side to create a diamond shape. The skirt is tightly knife pleated below the fitted waist and hips so it falls fairly straight but with tons of volume and swing when you move without adding bulk around your middle. The waist has a gold button at the waist to close and this is embossed with tiny double C's. The top is a soft cut that slips on with soft cap sleeves and alight padding through the shoulder to give then a touch of height. Each has a button cuff just above the elbows and this allows the sleeve to puff up above. I love the drawstring that runs through the waist of the top. It is cut to just hit the top of the waist band of the skirt but you could cinch it in and create an expanse of skin between if you wish. Excellent condition

The top is unlined and the skirt lined in a black, fine silk lining. The skirt closes with a button at the side on the waistband. The top slips with a button at each cuff and a drawstring though the waist.
