A SUPER RARE OPPORTUNITY to purchase a Chanel HAUTE COUTURE three piece day to night suit made by Karl Lagerfeld for a very important client.
From the 1992 Spring/Summer Haute Couture collection, this AMAZING three piece suit that would retail now for well over $50,000! It is EXACTLY the same suit as the first model shown below.
This is not a ready-to-wear piece, this is HAUTE COUTURE!
In MINT condition, the ensemble consists of three pieces. A long jacket made from an exquisite very lightweight wool/silk crepe in Chanel's signature quilted matelasse pattern, the jacket zips up the back with an exposed gold zipper. It has two long hip pockets. The entire jacket has Chanel's iconic gold chain wrapped buttons. The same buttons adorn each sleeve cuff.
The suit comes with two skirts. A day skirt in pleated silk chiffon and an evening skirt (as shown on the runway model) in black feathers on an organza base. BOTH ARE GORGEOUS!
The suit jacket is fully silk lined and the skirts are a whisper of fabric so that there are no bumps or bulges underneath the exquisite jacket when worn.
All pieces have the HAUTE COUTURE pointed end labels and are indiviually numbered underneath. Consistent with haute couture pieces, the shoulders are inset and the suit featurins handstitching and hand finished seams. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS construction.
The client for whom Karl Lagerfeld made this suit is a French 38 and this suit fits like a French 38 (not a small French 38, a regular to generous French 38).
The jacket has a 35" bust, 31" waist, 38" hips and is 33" long with 22" sleeves.
The night organza feather skirt has a 30" waist, 38" hips, 33" long
The day chiffon pleated skirt has a 30" waist, 38" hips, 22" long
