Sold - CHANEL by Karl Lagerfeld Fall 1991 Vintage Black Silk Evening Dress Runway Piece Size S

It's all about the details with this stunning short evening dress from Karl Lagerfeld's Fall 1991 collection for the house of Chanel. Seemingly simple at first sight, this little black dress is most intricately constructed - please have a look at the pictures to get an impression of how the structured black silk and the relatively stiff black grosgrain trimmings are cut and put together to form this feathery light dress that at the same time retains its incredible volume and threedimensional shape.

The seemingly demure dress features a sexy deep v-neckline with masterly set pleats and a silk bow at either side. The fitted waist is secured by internal hooks and eyes. The long sleeves each finish with three silk-covered buttons and slit cuffs. The dress closes at the front with the perfect understated buttons that are engraved "Chanel Paris" around their gold-tone metal sides. The knee-length skirt is widely flared and voluminous. No fabric tag, main fabric probably 100% silk, bodice lined in CC signature silk, skirt and sleeves are left unlined.
