Incredible Fall 2019 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Look 25 Knit Skirt w Sequin Detail

I have a small grouping of Chanel pieces that will be listing over the next week or so and they all come from an avid Couture and Chanel collector. Many of these pieces were extremely difficult to source when they were released and were only made in very limited quantities. They are in pristine condition and all but one have their original shop packet that has the extra fabric and style information. These are exceptional pieces for the collector and each is extremely special.

The twin of this skirt was worn for Look 25 and its near twin without the extra sequin detailing was shown for Look 22. This show holds an extra special place in the history of the house because it was the final collection designed by Karl before his death. The show took us to the mountains and as Vogue noted; 'models assembled, one by one, on the snow-covered steps of a faux alpine hostelry, the Chanel Gardenia. There was a minute’s silence. And then, Karl Lagerfeld’s voiceover, from a recent Chanel podcast, spoke in French, until the last sentence, where he burst through in English about his pleasure in imagining the detonation of a surprise on an audience in, “Oh! It’s like walking in a painting!”

This skirt was meant to combine the idea of a cozy Nordic sweater with thoughts of snowflakes and the twinkle of ice at night through the sequin detailing added to it. It is almost a full circle skirt and is a masterpiece knit that mixes a light fine wool with yak fibreand metallic threads. The base is the softest knit possible done in a black and then that gorgeous fluffy design in white is woven through the black to give it a slight 3D effect and texture. It is fantastic. On the mid-portion of the skirt a row of open diamond shapes circle all the way around you and each of those has a two tiny rows of sequins placed side-by-side with the sequins stacked over each other to follow the design. The innermost row is a deep blue and then between that and the white fluff is an iridescent rainbow coloured row that picks up the light from every angle. A wide silver metallic ribbed knit band lets it sit perfectly around the waist and I love that Chanel and those famous double Cs are woven directly into that band. Since the band is a knit it is also incredibly comfortable to wear as it has a little stretch to it. From the banded waist it glides over the hips and flares outward with all that volume that you see. We did not photo it with anything underneath but if you really wanted to make an even fuller bell shape you could add an underskirt for more support and volume. It is beautifully made and sits perfectly on the body. Everything about it has that meticulous attention to detail that Chanel gives their pieces. It is an outstanding piece of Chanel. New with original tags and never worn. This is an important piece of Chanel history. Excellent condition 

Unlined and closes at the side with a hidden set zipper. Original Chanel packet present. The knit band has some stretch. Current Chanel fantasy skirts start at $5500 and range up to $8500USD + for pieces with this level of detailing. Tagged a modern Chanel 38.
