Chanel 96A Pastel Runway Coat with 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.
