c1967 Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld Stud & Paillettes Yellow Mini Dress
For the 1967 Chloe Collection Karl Lagerfeld did sequins, paillettes and studs on short little dresses. Examples of that collection are held in museums around the world. This wonderful little dress is truly exceptional. I love the bright yellow mixed with all that wonderful detail. The cut is as simple as can be - it is a sleeveless A-line cut almost scandalously short and it zips up the front. You can in fact zip it completely open and wear this as a layered piece if you wished. I love the huge ring that anchors the zipper pull and that same ring detail is picked up in a slightly smaller size on each zippered pocket. Hundreds of iridescent paillettes edge the front and circle the hem and collar. A row of four deep circle the waist to give a hint of definition there and still more are used to define the pockets. Interspersed in the paillettes are silver sequins and silver studs. This is one of those vintage finds that just take your breathe away and it is exceptional in every way. There is one small note to review in the condition notes below but otherwise presents as excellent.
It is fully lined in a yellow silk and closes at the front with the zipper as seen. Each pocket zips to close and is functional. I see one missing paillettes on the back of the neck and one on the back of the arm on one side otherwise all are preset. There is a small area on the from near the hem where the fabric feels like it had tape on it at one point and it has left a mark. it has changed the fabric a little in texture and slightly in color in one spot. I have photoed it. The color is a touch brighter then how it photoed.
