Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking oatmeal textured linen-silk blend ensemble from her 1969 spring-summer haute couture collection is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. As you can see, this particular set was inspired by Salvador Dali's 1936 'The City of Drawers' and examples of this look have been part of museum exhibitions worldwide. Even the First Lady of France, Madame Claude Pompidou is documented wearing this gorgeous Chanel look. It is an important museum quality piece that also truly reads so wearable and timeless. I adore the elegant nehru collar and gold CC logo buttons throughout. There are four large pockets down each side, dramatic button cuffs and a built-in back belt design. The matching high-waisted skirt works beautifully with the jacket or you can pair the jacket with your favorite trousers. The flattering A-line construction, with back kick-pleat, is so flattering open or closed. A truly iconic designer look that will instantly become a favorite in your collection.
