Spring 2019 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Look 34 Blush Pink Silk Top w Parasol Print

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 2019 runway as part of Look 34. This is classic Chanel and is extremely well-made. The fabric is a pale silk crêpe de chine with a darling little parasol print mixed with the Chanel double C's covering its entire surface. The show was inspired by the beach in Deauville where Gabrielle Chanel had one of her first boutiques. The parasol print that covers the top are meant to mimic the beach chairs and umbrellas that are  set up at the hotels along the Riviera. The print is done from above giving us a birds eye view of the umbrellas. The show set was a trip to the beach complete with fake waves and this print was shown on several pieces throughout the line up. The twin of this same top was worn as part of Look 34.

I love that this top kind of walks the line between being a top and a soft jacket in feel. Its shape is also a nod to the work that Chanel was doing in the twenties and I love that as well. The front of the top is detailed with two panels of the silk that fold over at the outer edges before the silk underneath curves around to the back to meet at a centre inverted pleat. The neckline drops down into a V and it is bordered with a panel of the same silk. The cut is easy through the body and skims over the bust to a band at the waist that gives it shape. It is meant to blouse slightly over this banding so that it has a soft easy feel. It continues down and over the hips with a top set pocket set on each side. This adds to its easy feel and is the prefect finish. The top buttons down the front with the most beautiful pale lavender dome buttons that look like a stone with a touch of translucence to them. They each have the little double Cs on them as well. They are incredible. The sleeves are long with a slight puffing out over the cuffs. Each cuff is detailed with two smaller versions of those same wonderful buttons. It is an outstanding piece of Chanel. New with original tags and never worn. Excellent condition 

Unlined and buttons down the front and on each cuff as described above. Original Chanel packet present. The base colour is slightly more a nude bush pink than how it photoed. Current Chanel blouses with this level of detailing are retailing for $4800-5000USD. Tagged a modern Chanel 38
