About

1980s Chanel double breasted red wool dress with gold buttons featuring the profile of the founder, Gabrielle Chanel. Although a looser fit on top it nips in at the waist and flares out to give the appearance of separates. Has full length sleeves with the length of the skirt falling on average to just above the ankle. The weight of the fabric means that it hangs beautifully. This item is in excellent condition save for one or two tiny marks on the fabric - virtually unnoticeable. Labelled a French 40 would best fit a US size 6.
