Dresses that are pre-wrinkled are salivations for the woman on-the-go who wants to look chic when she's up in the air from city to city. From Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe, this perfect day dress is color blocked in pink and black in a wonderful crinkle-textured silk that manages to be feminine and functional as the fabric is friendly when the elements are not. The dress has a charming exaggerated ruffle "bib" that can be worn gracefully over your bosom or slightly over your shoulders. The two tone bow belt offers extra pizazz and the skirt has subtle slit pockets that always provide a little comfort when you aren't sure what to do with your hands. The dress has a lot of details and the signature Parisian "girly" look so associated with early 80s Chloe. It may seem almost conservative, but the dress has a sexy quality in the fabric and cut. It's all about the details.

Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld pink and black color block silk day dress with bib and belt, c. early 1980s. Marked 36, Modern size 4 SOLD
