Spring 2015 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway White Crepe de Chine Pleated Blouse W Handmade Camellia Buttons

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 top was shown on the Spring 2015 runway as part of Look 79. This is classic Chanel and is extremely well-made. The fabric is an ivory silk crêpe de chine and it is sleeveless with a neat little collar. The front of the top is detailed with meticulously done knife pleats and each exactly matches the size of its neighbours. These are set into the shoulder yolk and then are inset into a seam just a few inches above the hem. The cut is easy through the body so that when it is on the lower part of the top tucks in and the pleats blouse slightly over the waist. The collar is pointed and the top buttons down the front. The buttons are handmade, hand applied and poured black resin buttons to form perfect little Camellia flowers. Camellias were Gabriel Chanel's favourite flower. Camellias have no scent and legend says that besides their beauty, the fact that they did not interfere with her perfume is why she loved them. Each button is like an individual little jewelled piece on its own. The top comes with its original black silk lavalliere neck tie, which on the runway was shown worn as a bow, and I have done the same in these photos. I love the versatility of being able to remove that tie or wear a silk scarf instead for a pop of colour. It is an outstanding piece of Chanel. New with original tags and never worn.  Excellent condition 

Unlined and buttons down the front as seen. The neck tie is removable and both piece are labeled. Original Chanel packet present. Current Chanel blouses with this level of detailing are retailing for $4800-5000USD. Tagged a modern Chanel 38
