Chanel 1996 Haute Couture Gold Lace gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

The first "Evening Dress," of the show (Haute couture, 1996) designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel sets the pace. It is a knock-out copy of a gold lace gown worn by Coco Chanel in a photograph taken by Cecil Beaton in 1936. By kicking off with this gown, the dialogue between past and present is established immediately upon entering the show - Chanel's modernity and Karl Lagerfeld's post-modernity in tandem place the style of Chanel firmly in the present. Lagerfeld is letting the public know immediately that this is not going to be a "homage to Chanel" kind of a show, thank goodness. The gown is a luscious, sensuous creation in gold lace trimmed with gilt metal and multicolored paillettes recalling the fine tissues, embellishments and the magical handiwork of the Mughal artisans Chanel loved so well - but the silhouette is as lean and spare and body-conscious as a leotard."
