1970s Sequin Chloe Car Wash Hem Maxi

Rare and exceptional, late seventies, early eighties fully sequined car wash hem dress by Chloe from when Karl Lagerfeld designed for the house. The base of the dress is a black tissue silk and the sequin work literally covers every square inch. Very light weigh sequins were used and this combined with the silk makes the piece exceptionally fluid and movable. Really extraordinary. The cut is all karl - long and lean with a starkness contrasted by that deep deep gun metal gloss caused by the sequin work. The front plunges quite low and the line unbroken at the waist. It flows down, following every curve until just past the knee where it blossoms into four A-line shaped panels that are all separate form each other and are fully sequined on the front and the back so you do not loos the sequin effect no matter how you move. Mint condition and a real beauty.
