Documented F/W 1998 Chanel Runway Two Piece Dress Set


This is an absolute stunning dress from 1998 Chanel runway. My client knew that it was a runway piece and after sifting through 100s of photos we finally spotted it in the photo added here for reference. Everything about it has that chic Chanel feel that makes many of Karl's designs classics forever. It is very beautiful in person and the simple lines and cut make it the kind of dress that you can wear multiple times and the styling and accessories you add will make it feel different each time. It is two separate pieces and each is made of light crepe chiffon in a milk chocolate color. The over layer seems to be able to be worn with the opening to either the back or front and I photoed it both ways for you (it was worn to the back on the runway). The inner dress is as simple sheath with a low plunging bodice made of a double layer of the fabric and is cut with a deep plunge, it has the feel of a bikini top in coverage. The skirt of the inner dress is semi-transparent because it is made of a single layer of fabric. Note that in person it is not as transparent as it photoed since the light made it more so. Over this you layer the outer overlay which is almost like a sleeveless jacket. It hooks at the neck and waist and has a ling attached tie that comes out from the neck that you can style many ways. A caped overlay sits over the top and it also extends into long ties that can be simple knotted or wrapped in as many ways as you can think of. It is the perfect mix of sexiness and elegance. Excellent condition. The inner dress bodice is made of two layers of the silk crepe chiffon and the rest of the ensemble is unlined. The over lay has hook & eye at the neck and waist and the inner dress closes with a hidden set side zipper.
