Rare 1980s Graphic Boucle Chanel Midi Length Skirt Suit

This suit really shows the quality of the fabrics that Chanel uses and I would hazard to say that the vintage ones like this are even better then the newer pieces. This suit is a classic done on a nubby black and white boucle. Each strand used to make up the weave of the boucle is thick so really gives the fabric a wonderful finish. I love how the weave has been worked so that the pattern feels very graphic while still retaining that classic Chanel feel. The skirt is cut straight and to mid-length and wraps over itself leaving a slit where the leg will flash when you walk or sit. The jacket is the classic long Chanel box cut done to just past hip length. This is the classic for pocket  jacket and each pockets is adorned with a looping cord edge. That same finish runs around the collar and down the front and around the hem of the jacket and then down the skirt as well to tie it all together. Inside is that signature chain weighting the interior hem so the jacket always sits perfect. Excellent condition

Both pieces are fully lined in a high quality, fine black silk. The skirt closes with a flat hook at the waist and a zipper. The jacket has no closures. Chain weighted hem. All the pockets are fully functional and silk lined. Tagged a vintage Chanel 42. Hand finished
