1996 Pastel Runway Chanel Coat w Cabochon Buttons

The lines and cut of this classic Chanel piece will never go out of style. This was shown on the 1996-1997 fall runway and we have included the footage in the video below along with a screen shot. The workmanship is of course impeccable. It is constructed from a classic Chanel boucle and is lined in a high grade baby blue silk that has those famous double Cs woven into the silk. It is cut very boxy, the shape is almost a play on a man's overcoat, but the combination of pastel pink and powder blue keep it very feminine. Four pockets adorn the front and the three on the hip are highlighted with a cabochon encrusted, gold tone metal button. Those buttons instantly identify this as a Chanel piece and they also adorn each sleeve and button down the front. Having all those jeweled buttons almost makes it like wearing a fine piece of Chanel jewelry. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition

Fully lined with a pale blue silk and closes with the buttons as shown. Tagged a 42 but please go by actual listed measurements. It is a light - medium weight coat. The buttons on the cuffs are fully functional.
