Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking ivory-white formal gown, from head designer Karl Lagerfeld's 1985 collection, is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this opulent creation very rare; it is so timeless and elegant. Fashioned from mid-weight silk satin, the gown has exquisite sequin beadwork and heavily embellished camellia flowers embroidery in relief by the House of Lesage. The iridescent floral bouquets in densely packed clusters have a stunning lifelike three-dimensional quality. The bodice has a refined high scoopneck with 3/4-length sleeves. I love the hourglass nipped-waist met by the gathered full skirting. A true museum quality iconic garment that you will treasure for years and years to come.
This Chanel Haute-Couture numbered designer gown is in excellent condition with no rips, stains or holes. Perfectly working handset back-zipper. The inside is immaculate and all hand-finished. Highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
