1970s Chanel Numbered True Haute Couture Silk Top

About

This beautiful silk blouse was produced and made by hand by the Chanel atelier. It is a true, numbered Haute Couture. Haute Couture is the very pinnacle of the fashion experience and I would hazard to say that vintage versions are even a little more special then modern ones. This piece comes direct from the daughter of the original Haute Couture client so has not been on the market prior to this. The top is amazing and has a beautiful and classic cut and silhouette that is and will remain timeless. It is entirely done by hand and the silk is of the highest possible grade. It feels stupendous on. The top is loose fitting and the sleeves slightly voluminous above their deep French cuffs. I love the play on the tuxedo shirt through the panels of fabric that run down the front and hide the off-set buttons and snaps that close it down one side. It is truly a brilliant piece that when you see it in person you will be astounded at the level of craftsmanship and care put into the construction. A masterpiece. In excellent overall condition. Unlined with all interior seams hand finished. It closes with hand set, hidden buttons at the front side and a series of silk covered snaps. French cuffs, however they do not have the buttons - it did come with one french cuff link but they are not marked Chanel so I cannot be sure if it is original - I will send with it regardless . My client recalls her mother wearing these with jeweled cuffs and we suspect she ordered it without buttons since she wore her own jeweled version. Entirely hand done as one would expect from Haute Couture. I see a very very slight color change here and there but only if inspected in certain light - at first I thought this was a play of the light and fabric. I have priced it accordingly but do not think this impacts it all when worn. Sleeves: 23.5" Shoulders: 13" Bust: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist: 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips: 18.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 26.5" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: XS-SML This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
