1996 Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Runway Yellow Knit Cropped Sweater Set
Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This sensational yellow silk knit cropped cardigan sweater set, dating back to Karl Lagerfeld's 1996 spring-summer runway collection, is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Though prolific designer Karl Lagerfeld sadly passed away in 2019, he left behind such an impressive legacy. From his start in fashion as Pierre Balmain's assistant back in 1955, to the astounding impact he made after taking over Chanel in 1983, Lagerfeld's varied career has encompassed so many highlights. Not only is this documented runway look number 136 a rare collectable treasure, it's also such a chic vibe. The fabric is glorious; a mid weight stretch silk knit in the prettiest yellow color. I especially adore the short sleeve cardigan with the CC logo buttons and duel pockets. Both the camisole tank top and sweater also have embroidered CC logos as well! On the runway Carla Bruni modeled this two piece with hot pants but it would look just as amazing with trousers or jeans. It's a set with a multitude of styling possibilities. We added many pictures so you could appreciate this stunning and ultra rare documented Chanel set.
