We are blessed to have a LOT of Chanel here at Decades. From suits to dresses to bling and bags, we have your Chanel-back covered! Lots more to be posted in days to come...

We love the clean look of black and white and this early Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel design (likely around 1984) is a great mix of materials all under the master eye of Kaiser Karl. The dress begins with a classic pleated black taffeta bustier that defines your waist and then comes out to a pleated peplum. The skirt of the dress is an embroidered Irish voile with delicate motifs of floral and white motif motifs. For a little drama, an unexpected band of black velvet edges the bottom of the skirt.

We suggest this dress with piles and piles of Chanel costume jewelry and a pair of colorful shoes to bring a splash of your panache!

Chanel Boutique tafetta and cotton voile strapless dress, c 1984. Marked size 40, modern size 6 to 8
