Chanel lace and striped camellia empire dress s/s 1988
Emphasizing a vibrant femininity, Chanel's Spring/Summer 1988 collection was full of delicate laces and exuberant colors
This dress features an elegant black lace bodice with a prominent square neckline that frames the décolletage
A satin waistband at a high empire waistline separates the lace bodice from the pleated silk skirt printed with camellia flowers in indigo, teal, emerald, gold, and ruby red on a black and white striped ground
The skirt falls in a classic column silhouette that, in harmony with the vertical stripes, lengthens the body
A classy combination of timeless lace and an unexpected patterned skirt speaks to Chanel’s simple aesthetic and grand personality
A rare find, this dress can be seen in the featured images from the 1988 runway
This dress closes at centre back with a concealed zip and snaps.
The inside of this dress offers just as much as the exterior. The main portion of the bodice is lined with matching black silk chiffon that allows a soft contrast to the unlined sleeves.
A 4-inch mesh boned corset belt allows for exceptional fit and support.
The skirt is lined in a crème chiffon
