Chic 1990s Chanel Woven Silk Crepe Sleeveless Dress

About

Karl Lagerfeld is a genius when it comes to combining cut and fabric and this Chanel dress showcases that. The dress is made from a fine, light crepe silk fabric that has been woven into a square grid pattern that gives it a very unusual texture. This technique also makes the fabric very light and pliable with lots of movement. One in it is very comfortable and easy to wear. This feeling of ease is made more so by the fine silk that lines it. The color is a deep, rich milk chocolate and the cut is deceptively simple. The fabric he chose for this dress has the same properties as the iconic boucle that the house regularly uses and is bias cut in all four directions. This means that it moves easily over the body with no restrictions while at the same time always keeping its shape. The bodice is sleeveless with a V neckline and very simple. The waist is set at a slight drop and the fabric skims over the body in a sleek column from the shoulder to the floor. Pockets sit on each hip and each pocket has a distinctive Chanel logo button adorning it. Excellent condition.

Fully interlined in a fine brown silk crepe and closes with a back hidden set zipper. Hidden pockets on each hip each with a Chanel button. Extra Chanel button included. Beautifully constructed with hand finishes
