F/W 2006 Chanel Runway Little Black Fitted Stretch Dress

About

The 2006 Chanel collection by Karl Lagerfeld was well received. Sarah Mower of Vogue said this in her review: "Karl Lagerfeld's ability to stretch the template of Chanel this way and that according to the moment never ceases. This season, the block-heeled sixties spectator boot he first showed for couture gave him the starting point to design upward into a young and leggy look...Though it was mainly black, with touches of white, cream, and dull pink, Lagerfeld's collection didn't come off as one of the season's solemn pronouncements on sobriety and restraint. Instead, he worked texture, sparkle, and girlishness into surfaces and styling: He used satin ribbons and bows for hair bands and bodices, raw edgings on hems, and gemstones and crystals set in big brooches or as bejeweled necklines set into evening dresses....For evening, Lagerfeld checked off more points of the season, from exaggerated puff-sleeves to sixties Edie-ish baby dolls and various renderings of chiffon dresses layered over trousers. Cute and young was the general impression, but—no surprise—Lagerfeld also ensured that classic Chanel's all-encompassing sweep remained firmly in the mind's eye." Here we have Look 9 from the runway and this dress illustrates Karl's meticulous tailoring skills. It is made from a light black silk stretch silk and cut with immaculate seaming so that it fits every curve. On the runway it was belted and worn with a high boot. It is that little black dress that every girl needs in her closet and its simple and classic lines transcend season and era to make it a forever piece. The simplicity will allow you to wear it in a multitude of styling possibilities. Excellent condition Fully lined in a black stretch silk and closes with a hidden set back zipper. Tagged a 36.
