Chanel Assymetric Haute Couture

This dress is quite exceptional. An early creation from Lagerfeld at Chanel it is extremely conceptual and stands out from his later vision at Chanel which was far more Coco inspired. This dress maintains traditional hints of the House of Chanel but infuses it with what would be extremely of-the-moment references in the construction and design of the top half of the dress.

Chanel Haute Couture, early 80s, cocktail dress in dark purple silk jersey with asymmetric neck line and pleated skirt. A dramatic ensemble to say the least. A contemporary size 4.
