1970's Chanel Numbered Haute Couture Dress, Jacket & Slip

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This is a beautiful example of the classic Chanel look. Chiffon lined creamy beige silk crepe is used for all three pieces in this ensemble. The jacket is embellished with café au lait silk embroidery accented with two bands of gold thread. It has three hooks and eye closures. The dress has the same embroidery at the neckline, shoulders and on the wide cummerbund style waistband. It has buttons and hand bound buttonholes from the neck to the waist, and the waist has a series of snaps and hook eye closures. The skirt is gathered at the waistline. It is open from the waist to the hem over a matching slip or underdress. Both the jacket and the dress have sequentially numbered haute couture labels. All three pieces are hand finished in the couture fashion and they are in excellent condition with very, very faint darkening under the arms of the dress only.
