Chanel Boutique wool suit, 1980s
Karl Lagerfeld: "Make a better future by developing elements from the past."
Our Chanel suit, designed by Karl Lagerfeld, does just that. From his lofty position at the height of fashion, he has had enormous success by reinventing Chanel's signature themes to pique the fantasies of today's young woman.
Karl Lagerfeld cannot help himself. Despite his occasional "bad boy" efforts to parody the Chanel image, we see in this classical suit everything that Coco Chanel stood for: dignity, restraint, indeed a style that allows women to dress as comfortably and confidently as men do.
The stylish suit is fashioned from cream colored wool bouclé. Both pieces are lined with matching silk woven with the CC logo. Here is Chanel's masterful fashion architecture. The superb tailoring emphasizes the clean lines of the minimalist styling.
The double-breasted jacket has four patch pockets and closes with Chanel/Paris silver tone buttons. The jacket hem is weighted with a silver tone metallic chain. The skirt closes with an invisible zipper.
Karl Lagerfeld has successfully reinvented the classic Chanel style. Our chic suit captures the essence of the celebrated Chanel "look": elegant, comfortable, and practical. As Coco Chanel used to say, "Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions."
The condition is excellent.
