Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking black guipure crochet-lace and velvet cocktail dress ensemble from her 1973 Fall/Winter collection is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this little number very elegant; it is so versatile and timeless. The underslip is complete with structural boning and elegant thin-straps. The overlay has bold velvet trimming and gorgeous sash-bow detail. This unique hand-crochet technique must have taken weeks to complete. I adore those chic illusion long-sleeves! The figure flattering narrowing pencil-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. A beautiful museum quality treasure that can be worn all year long.
