Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This hard to find, documented black wool knit trompe l'oeil belts dress from Karl Lagerfeld's iconic 1985 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 alluring; it is so versatile and timeless. The bodice has casual elegance with it's slightly bloused sleeveless silhouette. Gold metallic logo buttons flow down the front and trim the bust pockets. I love the studded, metallic embroidered, leather trompe l'oeil belts design which adds so much depth and texture. We added many pictures so one can appreciate this masterful achievement. The knee-length pencil skirt gives this showstopper a balanced elegance Chanel is known for. A timeless couture look for any modern event.
