1971 Chanel Haute Couture White Tulip Novelty Lace & Satin Party Dress Ensemble
Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking white tulip-patterned Calais lace and silk satin cocktail dress ensemble from her 1971 Spring/Summer collection is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this little number very elegant, it is an important piece from her LAST collection before she passed away. I adore the low-cut pleated bodice complete with side bow-sash. The narrowing pencil-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. I adore the hand-appliqued hemline technique which is also repeated on the jacket cuffs. The matching jacket is a statement piece on it's own and can totally be paired with almost anything. Just look at the iconic over-sized Chanel bow closure! A beautiful museum quality ensemble in a rare larger size.

This Chanel Haute-Couture cocktail dress ensemble is in excellent condition with no rips, discolor or holes. The inside is all immaculate and all hand-finished. Only sign of wear is one small spot by the side bodice seam. Perfectly working back metal-zipper. This designer garment is truly exquisite and an investment piece that will only increase in value.
