Documented Fall 2001 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Black & White Silk Logo Skirt
This is an amazing skirt whose twin was shown on the fall 2001 Chanel runway. This was an interesting season because the collection was viewed in Paris and then it was brought to New York where it was shown again. I love it because it's so versatile and can be styled in so many ways and with so many colours and prints. It can be completely classic or be styled to be extremely edgy. And I also love that even though the Chanel logo runs through it it's not overtly logoed.
The logo worked into the print makes it instantly recognizable as being Chanel. It is made from a very fine scarf weight silk that almost weightless once on the body. This fabric choice helps to keep it feeling effortless once you have it on and gives it incredible movement as it moves around you. It as a solid band black around the waist and then it skims over the hips to flare out to the hem. It is perfectly pleated all the way around with wide knife pleats that are each perfectly matched to its neighbor. They are stitched closed around the top of the hips and then flare open to give the skirt lots of movement and shape. It is just gorgeous. Under the top printed layer are two layers of black silk chiffon and these peek out just a touch at the bottom for extra detailing. You can see how wonderful it moves in the runway clip added for reference. Excellent condition with one minor note below
Fully lined in two layers of silk chiffon and closes with a hidden side zipper and two logo buttons at the waist band. There is a teeny bit of stress near one seam. It is minor and you have to really look for it. Please see the photos after the label shot. Tagged a Chanel 40Waist: 15" flat across from side seam to side seam
