Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking black silk-satin princess dress coat from her 1954-55 collection is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Chanel from this era is extremely hard to find and the only similar garment we found is held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York. Not only is this dress coat very elegant; it is so versatile and timeless. I adore the wide collar and 3/4-length cuffed sleeves complete with gorgeous sculpted line work. The nipped fit and flair pleated princess skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A beautiful museum quality Chanel show-stopper.
