  • 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
