Maharajahs famously rode on elephants in elaborate processions in India decked in jewels.  This Chanel dress would not be appropriate for such a grand road trip, but the whimsical elephant print on navy silk and crown gilt buttons makes for a very chic chemise dress with cap sleeves and stylish skirt that is enhanced with a second layer of silk like a reverse apron. This can be worn rather sexy if you leave some buttons undone.  Just don't lose those buttons!

Chanel elephant print silk dress, c. 1980's. Marked size 40.   Modern 6 to 8 SOLD
