1970s Rare Wool Crepe Chloe Day Dress

A gorgeous and Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe dress in a delicious fine wool moss crepe! The bodice is cut to be fitted and skim over the torso. The sleeves are amazing - they flare out to an almost bubble at the cuff and have an elastic around each wrist so that the fabric poufs out above. The skirt flows out from the waist and is cut in a sift A-line with a touch of fullness but in a sleek and subdued way. I love the edge stitched collar and slight plunge front, The stitching is picked up on the wide sash belt too. You can just picture this dress styled with high boots and a wide brimmed Yves Saint Laurent hat and in the pages of Vogue back in its day! Wonderful, sophisticated piece that feels as modern now as then. Excellent condition
