Pretty 2000s Christian Lacroix Bazar Black Silk Chiffon Top or Light Jacket w Lace Finishes

Christian LaCroix launched his Haute Couture house in 1987 and was an instant success on the worldwide stage. Ready-to-wear lines soon followed along with perfumes and menswear. His collections are always exotic lavish affairs and his designs seemed to span the decades with their eccentric glamour pulled from multiple sources of inspiration. This is a very easy to wear piece for the Bazar line and it is a beauty.

This is such a pretty top. It is a piece that you can wear open and layered over other things for more of a light evening jacket feel or tie it closed down the front and wear it more like a top on its own. It is made out of a double layer of black silk chiffon mixed with a lace and it is insanely soft to the touch. It has a touch of transparency, which is very pretty. Everything about it is meant to convey ease and luxury. It slips on and then ties down the front. The shoulders are soft and the sleeves end in lace cuffs. The body of the top has a more loose and generous cut. The collar is finished with lace that starts around the neck and the sits on either side of the front plunge. It goes all the way to the hem and then circles around. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition.

Made of two layers of the silk chiffon and ties to close at the front. Tagged a vintage Lacroix 38
