Fall 1981 Chanel Red Lurex and Chenille Cord Skirt and Jacket Set

About

Without doubt this is truly an exceptional piece of vintage Chanel and a rare find. It is a wonderful example of the work that Chanel was creating during this time period. Both pieces are made from a of a metallic red silk lurex fabric that is very light and fine. Over that fabric, a black chenille cord has been hand applied into a twisting pattern that runs over the entirety of the set. There is a slight padding under the lurex so that it gives it a touch of a 3D feel as well. Both the jacket and the skirt are lined in a black tissue silk. The cut on each piece is simple so that the fabric can take center stage. The jacket has that classic Chanel box cut with no closures at the front. The edges are all lined in the same chenille cording that runs over the fabric. The skirt is cut to fit around the hips and then widens out as it nears the hem. Pockets sit on each hip. The fabric is not heavy but has enough weight to it that both pieces hold their shape. This is early Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel and it has the Chanel boutique label in the jacket and the skirt has a hand written tape label inside which tells us that this was most likely a custom, or special order piece. It is made to demi-couture standards. Excellent condition Full lined in a fine black tissue silk. Hand finished throughout. The jacket has no closures and the skirt closes with hand set zipper at the back and hook and eye at the waist band. Light padding in the shoulders of the jacket and pockets along the side seams on the skirt. Tape label reads "141 22141" though the last number maybe be something else.
