CHANEL by Karl Lagerfeld Fall 1990 Vintage Gold Lamé High-Low Evening Dress Size M // Sold

This vintage Chanel evening dress from Karl Lagerfeld's Fall 1990 collection for the house is crafted from an olive gold lamé with a deep raspberry red silk lining. The cut is very refined, with fabric of the bodice being artfully gathered into horizontal pleats and delicate spaghetti straps. The dress features a stunning high-low hemline, with the raspberry red lining peeking out, and a spectacular back with masterfully draped fabric cascading to the floor. Finished to the highest standards with internal boning, netting, an elastic stay around the bust and a waist stay. The dress closes with a hidden back zipper, and the fabric draped above fastens with a row of hidden snap buttons and hooks and eyes. Made in France.

Modeled on the runway by none other than Karl Lagerfeld's then recently discovered muse Claudia Schiffer.

Overall excellent, appears hardly worn. Please note one pinhole and two or three minimal imperfections to the lamé near the hemline as pictured. One pinhole to the bottom layer of the lamé at the front of the skirt (not visible when worn, fully covered by the top layer).
