Spectacular 1990s Unlabeled Chanel by Krl Lagerfeld Black SIlk Dress w V Front & Logo Buttons

This is a stunning 1990s Chanel dress by Karl Lagerfeld that no longer has its label but still has its beautiful gold metal Chanel logo embossed buttons.  This is from a client whose wardrobe is full of Chanel and Gucci pieces and she remembers this one being from the early to mid 1990s. The shape is classic Chanel for this time and still feels remarkably fresh now.

This is an absolutely lovely dress. It is made from a beautiful weight black silk that is of quality that you only seem to find vintage pieces these days. It is so well-made that we think you could wear it either way around so that the V is in the front or the back. It is meant for the V to be at the front but you could easily wear it the other way around and we took a photo for you to see it that way as well. It plunges at the plunge and it is sleeveless. The bodice is cut to blouse out over you and over the waist. The waist is seamed for a shape with a small band of the same fabric. The skirt falls to about the ankle length depending on your height. It skims out over the hips and gradually widens out as it nears the hem. I love how there is a seam just under the hips and from there to the hem the skirt falls in a series of wide pleats. This particular pleat is a Chanel signature and it is often use on their skirts. Down the front of the dress starting from the waist is a series of gold Chanel buttons with a padded feel like one of their quilted bags and the Chanel logo at the top of each one. It is the only embellishment on the dress and I love the simplicity that this gives it while still letting people know that you are wearing a Chanel. The dress can be worn with the waist more fitted or it works equally as well on a smaller frame with the waist loose and dropped a little lower. You can easily wear this on its own or wear it layered under or over other items from your wardrobe to give it a completely different feel. This is a beautiful example of Chanel from this time period. If it had a label it would be significantly more so its also a steal. Excellent condition.

Fully lined in the same silk as the exterior through the upper bodice and silk chiffon through the rest of the dress. It closes at the front with hidden set snaps above the waist, hooks at the waist, and then the buttons down the front. I see a little bit of snagging to the silk near the hooks, and I think they were removed at some point. You could easily move them back and you would no longer see this. Please see the final photo. Unlabeled but has the proper Chanel buttons.
