About

Resplendent dots of gold blanket a gorgeous array of flowers in this breathtaking vintage Chanel gown. A haute couture find from the Seventies, it was made shortly after Coco passed away. It speaks volumes to how entrenched her modern ethos had become. A take on the shirtdress, it is unbelievably easy. Six hand-covered buttons at the front placket open to enable the wearer to simply slip into the lined black silk chiffon garment. A pointed collar, puffed sleeves, barrel cuffs and pleats that are stitched from the waist to the hips instantly lend the whole silhouette incredible sophistication and elegance. Still current all these decades later, this gown is a treasure that will be unique at any event to which it is worn.
