Chanel Haute Couture Bridal Cream Dress Suit With Lace Overlay 1980s UK Size 10
This extraordinary 1980s Chanel Haute Couture set is in impeccable condition and showcases some unusual textural design features. The jacket is of wool fantasy tweed in ivory with a lace overlay lined in silk satin. Light padding on the shoulders and a round neckline creates a soft and elegant line. The button stand hosts 6 lace-covered buttons in gilt casing and the interior hem of the jacket is trimmed with signature chain. The dress has a light, exquisitely tailored silk crepe bodice and straight wool tweed skirt with a lace overlay to match the jacket. The fabric of the bodice is arranged into a series of upwards facing pleats with a caftan style neckline. A central button stand runs the reverse of the bodice, with lace buttons visible at the nape of the neck and top of the waistband. This ensemble would make a fantastic bridal outfit and both pieces look equally good as separates. In superb vintage condition,would best suit US size 6, possibly a small 8, or UK 10 to small 12.
