96A Pastel Runway Chanel Coat w Cabochon Buttons

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The lines and cut of this classic Chanel piece will never go out of style. This was shown on the 1996-1997 fall runway and we have included the footage in the video below along with a screen shot. The workmanship is of course impeccable. It is constructed from that classic Chanel boucle and is lined in a high grade baby blue silk that has those famous double Cs woven into the silk. It is cut very boxy - almost a play on a man's overcoat but the use of that combination of pastel pink and powder blue make it 100% female. Four pockets adorn the front and the three on the hip are highlighted with a cabochon encrusted, gold tone metal buttons. Those buttons instantly identify this as a Chanel piece and they also adorn each sleeve and button down the front. Having all those jeweled buttons almost makes it like wearing a fine piece of Chanel jewelery. It is gorgeous. Excellent condition

Fully lined with a pale blue silk and closes with the buttons as shown. Tagged a 42 but please go by actual listed measurements. It is a light - medium weight coat. The buttons on the cuffs are fully functional.
