We could write a very similar schpiel about this vintage Chloe top as we did about the Fabrice "top" posted early today because to some it's a dress; others, a tunic; yet others ,a blouse. What is for sure is that it's pretty fabulous. How can one not be seduced by the gold crinkled lame cowl that is exaggerated to Grace Jones proportions?Yes, you can wear the cowl as a hood or off a shoulder, too. Just juxtapose the volume on top with something tight on the bottom and you are good to get up and go. It's cut like a long sweatshirt with a band at the bottom of both sleeves and at the hem (where a few delicate gathers give the top some extra flair via the classy detail). The fabric is crepe satin, but the satin finish is used for the lining so expect to slide and slither a little bit from the sensuality of satin touching your skin.

Chloe for Giorgio black crepe with crinkled gold lame cowl/hood pullover, c. early 1980s. Modern 4 to 6 (Chloe label removed but Giorgio Beverly Hills label attached).SOLD
