ARCHIVE: 2010s Chanel Metiers d Art Hamburg Knitted Dress

£0.00 Sold out
This documented Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld ribbed knit dress is from the pre-Fall 2018 Métiers d’Art show in Hamburg, the German seaport of his birth. We have attached runway look 33 and 34 to show both the wool pattern and the dress design respectively. The dress combines the practicality of winter dressing with a contemporary, almost abstract feel. Featuring a high roll neck and long sleeves, the dress is cut from a ribbed 100% wool blend, making it incredibly soft to the touch and even more comfortable to wear. The fabric itself is made up of a repeated abstract square design, in autumnal hues of rusty orange, plum pink, green, deep brown and cream. Fitted throughout the body, the dress falls to roughly below the knee, and would be perfect in the colder months with a pair of boots or funky tights.

Due to the stretchy nature of the fabric, it simply slips over the head, without need for a zip or fastening. It features the 'Chanel 31 Rue de Cambon' badge to the front left hip, signifying the Paris address bought by Coco Chanel herself in 1921. The dress is in superb condition with no faults or marks to note and looks unworn. It would best fit a UK 10, or 6 US and is labelled a French 40.

Will you set anything aside for me before I come?

We are happy to find anything you may be interested in from our website - please let us know a week in advance. 

We also have an extensive offline collection. If you let us know your size, style, favourite colour to wear and perhaps your budget, we can browse through our archive in advance of your appointment. 

Do I need to bring anything with me?

Clients may wish to bring modern shapewear when trying on garments from certain eras, especially the 1950s. Vintage clothing was often worn with undergarments that shaped the waist and as such is tailored for them.

We have a huge variety of slip dresses and petticoats to complete your look; many of which are also for sale.

You may also wish to bring your favourite footwear. We often find a classic pair of nude shoes work well when trying on, or a pair in gold or silver.

Do you have a price range?

Many of our lower-priced pieces (under £150) are not available to buy online. Our prices range from £80 - £600 for separates. Dresses start at around £150 and go up to £2,500 for the very best antique pieces and designer vintage. Our bridalwear ranges from £300 - £3,000.
