Fabulous 2007 Chanel Resort Runway Textured White Lace Front Pocket Jumpsuit
The twin of this jumpsuit walked the runway for the Resort 2007 collection. It was Look 5 on the runway and I love that we found runway footage of it so that you can see how fabulous it moves and sits on the body. The show took place in the Grand Central Terminal in New York and stars like Mischa Barton, Naomi Watts, Julianne Moore, and Maria Bello all sat in the audience. Karl said of the show that season; 'Cruise is all about traveling, so the symbol of the station is a good idea... and I love the space, I always have. I think it is one of the most beautiful spaces in New York.' This is a superb example of Karl's view on how to do casual and still be very 'Chanel'. The twin of this jumpsuit is also showcased in the book 'Chanel: Catwalk'. I always love finding such well documented pieces and this one is just extra cool and chic to boot.
The jumpsuit is made out of a textured white cotton that somehow has been done so that it has the look of the classic Chanel boucle. It is cut to skim over the body and feel easy to wear. It is cut to be loose and easy through the waist with belt loops so that if you chose to cinch it in you could. On the runway the jumpsuit was shown with a Chanel belt. You could easily wear it with any belt you already own or wear it as it as sold and without a belt. Each leg is shaped with a bit of a flare at the hem that is just the perfect cut. Depending on how tall you are they will end at the ankle or below. Top set pockets are slung low on each side of the hips and then there are two more pockets at the back. Those are also top set and have those back ones are detailed with a silver studs that are engraved with 'Chanel Paris' spelled out on them. I love that built in waistband with its belt loops and crossed over X at the back. It is like a design detail all on its own and makes wearing a belt optional. The front laces up with three white cords. Each cord is capped and the Chanel logo is on their bases. Behind the laces there is a modesty panel that is attached at one side and buttons into place on the other. This covers the space between the laces so that you get a sexy feel but you are actually entirely covered. If you wanted more skin to show you could fold that panel back on one side or have it altered to make it removable and button into place on both sides. The interior of the front panel, around the neck and around the waist is a finished in a super soft silk that is embossed with more Chanel logos. It is gorgeous. It can be worn with flats for lunch or heels for night. Excellent condition
Partially lined through the top as described above and then the rest of the jumpsuit is unlined. It laces at the front and there is a hidden set zipper under that. Tagged a Chanel 40. It looks to have been worn very little if at all.
