Chanel Haute Couture Bridal Cream Dress Suit With Lace Overlay, 1980s


This extraordinary 1980s Chanel Haute Couture two piece set is in impeccable condition and showcases some unusual textural design features. The long thigh length jacket is made of wool fantasy tweed in ivory cream and has a beautiful lace overlay with luxurious silk satin lining. It is skilfully cut to glide over the hip with light padding on the shoulders and a round neckline, creating a soft and elegant line. The central button stand hosts 6 bespoke lace-covered buttons in gold gilt casing and the interior hem of the jacket is trimmed with signature gold gilt chain. The long-sleeved dress has a light, exquisitely tailored silk crepe bodice and straight wool tweed skirt with a lace overlay to match the jacket. The fabric of the bodice is arranged into a series of upwards facing pleats. A caftan style neckline is modest yet flattering to the bust. A central button stand runs the reverse of the bodice, with lace covered buttons to mirror the jacket visible at the nape of the neck and the top of the waistband, leaving the remaining buttons concealed. This ensemble would make a fantastic bridal outfit and both pieces look equally good as separates. In superb vintage condition, this remarkable outfit would best suit US size 6, possibly a small 8, or UK 10 to small 12. JACKET: Bust-36" (92cms) Waist- 32" (82cms) Length-33.5" (85.7cms) DRESS: Bust-36" (92cms) Waist- 30" (77cms) Hip-38"(96cms) Length-34.5" (87.5cms)
