This beautiful dress coat with a pink sash is as dramatic as it is classic. Upon the first look it could be a Yves Saint Laurent, or a Lanvin but this is Chanel Couture from the 60's. With Madame Chanel still living and very much involved in the business, the House of Chanel saw many designers come and go during this decade, up until 1982 when Lagerfeld was announced as the creative director for the Couture collections with Herve Leger heading the ready-to-wear. We are so programmed to black and white as the signature color combo of Chanel today, but there is nothing more classic as black and pink.   Chanel has been in business for over 10 decades for being very french and very classic. 
If you are planning on going to an opera or any black tie event, look no further. This Chanel is what you should wear.

Chanel Haute Couture black dress coat with pink belt, c.1960's. Modern size 4. SOLD
