1966 Chanel Haute-Couture White Tulip Novelty Lace & Satin Party Dress Ensemble

About

Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking white tulip-patterned Darquer Calais lace and satin cocktail dress ensemble from her 1966 Spring/Summer collection is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this little number very elegant; it is so versatile and timeless. I adore the low-cut pleated bodice complete with side bow-sash. The narrowing pencil-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. I adore the hand-appliqued hemline technique which is also repeated on the jacket cuffs. The matching jacket is a statement piece on it's own and can totally be paired with almost anything. Just look at the iconic over-sized Chanel bow closure! A beautiful museum quality ensemble in a rare larger size.
