Chanel is known to be one of the most luxurious and decadent fashion houses in the world. This breathtaking fully-embroidered ivory silk gown with matching jacket, from their iconic 1982 fall-winter haute couture collection, is a perfect example of why this couture brand has stood the test of time. Not only is this opulent creation very rare; it is so timeless and elegant. Fashioned from the highest quality fully-lined ivory silk, both pieces has exquisite hand-stitched metallic embroidery, embellished crystals and the finest tulle inserts in relief by the House of Lesage. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; couture embroidery houses such as Lesage were used for embellishment and represent hundreds of hours of artistic handwork. The large scale camellia flowers in such a densely packed motif has a stunning lifelike three-dimensional quality. The sleeveless sheer illusion curved bodice has a chic low-cut backside. The belted hourglass nipped waist narrowing wiggle-skirt construction emphasizes a woman's seductive shape without adding any bulk or volume to the actual hips. I adore the matching wide-collar jacket which has the most beautiful gold-toned crystal buttons and signature chain trimming. You can even wear the jacket alone has a fantastic statement piece. We added many pictures so you can appreciate this masterful achievement. You can definitely wear this show stopper to any red carpet event or it would make the dreamy bridal look for a modern wedding. A true museum quality iconic ensemble that you will treasure for years and years to come.
