1981 Silk Chiffon Chloe Slip & Dress

This is Karl Lagerfeld era Chloe and it is the epitome of that casual but chic French girl feel that the label is known for. Made of two dresses of the lightest, finest silk chiffon that slip over one another. It has a definite flapper feel with its dropped waist and loose cut. The color is like river clay and the perfect neutral. I love the banding of silk ribbons that give the dress a pretty and romantic touch! Perfect for summer and a collectible! Excellent condition

The inner dress acts as the lining. Both pieces slip over the head. The outer dress has an elastic at the waist and a button at the back of the neck. There is a teeny pull in the satin ribbon here and there but these are so tiny and I do not consider these a flaw on a garment this age.
