1980s Chanel Black Silk Ensemble

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This unbelievable ensemble is classic Chanel. The piece looks so simple yet has far more detailed work than we see from other designers of the 1980s. The two pieces move as one and flow elegantly.This Chanel has an asymmetrical black silk bustier with pleating and boning at sides and back. Two beautiful bows detail the back of the ensemble and surround a hook and eye closure. The bustier lies at the natural waist with an inner belt and elastic bust strap for fit and structure. Size 38

The ankle length skirt is made of gathered black sheer silk with a 1 ¾ inch silk ribbon waist band and small bow at back. Skirt lining is underlined with black silk. Hook and eye at waist band with back zipper. Size 38.
