Dreamy Cruise 2004 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Pale Pink Knit Dress & Pastel Cardigan Set

There is very little information of the cruise collections from the early 2000s but we were able to find runway photos of the jacket. On the runway it was paired with a casual trouser andI love that this helps to show you have versatile it is - you can wear the dress and jacket together or separate them to extend the life and times you will wear both pieces. This came from the estate of a woman who shopped a lot at Chanel. Her things were stunning and she took immaculate care of them. I absolutely love this set and it is just so pretty.

The jacket is a mix of the finest possible cashmere and silk and the dress feel more like a cotton and silk mix. Both pieces are absolutely beautiful. The jacket is so pretty in its won right. The base is a a pale yellow knit that has a wide ribbed texture through it set vertically. It is a hand knit border made of three rows of little knit pom poms spaced in tight rows. There are three layers of these. One is a pale pink and then that has a white and yellow row on either side. On the very inside there is a row of pink net lace for the perfect finish. These bordering detail runs down the front edges, around the hem and collar, and at the ends of the sleeves. The rest of the jacket is cut soft and easy so that it feel like a mix of a cardigan and jacket and just stays easy and simple. The dress is cut with a scooped front and another scooped at the back. The back scoop dips a bit lower. It is cut to skim over you with an easy waist and hip and then it has a pretty flare is it nears the hem. It has a very tennis country club feel to the way it is cut. The top part of the dress has a ribbed striped detail that runs horizontally across just under the bust area and then another at the top of the skirt. This striped detail is done in a yellow and deeper pink and I love it. The skirt has a more chevron ribbing and this adds a pretty detail to the dress and picks up on the horizontal striping on the jacket when you wear them together. There most likely would have been bought separately but I decided to keep it together because it felt like they belong together. A little rectangle is sewn onto one side of the jacket with Chanel engraved onto it and another on the dress just above the hip. This is a superb Chanel set that is just exceptional. Excellent condition.

Both the skirt and the jacket are unlined. Both the dress and jacket slip on to wear with no closures. Chanel logo sewn onto both pieces of the suit. It appears to have been worn very little if at all. I see a small area of darkening on the back of the skirt but only in certain lights and it was too light to photo. I am just being super picky. The color and texture are even better in person. The jacket is tagged a Chanel 40 and the dress has no size tag present. The colours are better in person
