Who doesn't love a little mystery in their life or closet?  The Chanel Creations label is neither Coco Chanel or Karl Lagerfeld.  It represents a period when Chanel was designed anonymously prior to Karl's triumphant debut in 1983.  The label was considered dead before Kaiser Karl worked his magic, but perfectly classic product was produced and this red coat and gift-with-purchase skirt is unworn. Originally purchased at Bullock's Wilshire, considering inflation, it retailed for nearly $8000 in the late 1970s (we have the original price tag).  Although the Chanel label may have not been reignited at time of design, it still carried a hefty price tag. 

Rumors have swirled about who designed Chanel between Coco and Karl and I don't have an answer.  However, I can confirm for the ultimate in classic, timeless Chanel, this is an ideal investment.  As I often remind my friends, one never knows when an invitation to meet the Pope may be received and a classic Chanel suit the ultimate in classic, timeless and appropriate attire.
