1974 Chanel Haute-Couture Blue Floral Illusion Silk Billow-Sleeve Belted Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking blue tiger-lily ombre floral textured silk dress ensemble from her 1974 Fall/Winter 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. The underslip is complete with matching print skirting and elegant thin-straps. The overlay has a gorgeous bow-tie neckline and dramatic billow-sleeves. I adore the chic illusion effect with seductive belted waist. The figure flattering pleated swing skirt emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A beautiful museum quality treasure that can be worn all year long.

This designer garment is truly exquisite and an investment piece that will only increase in value.
