Chanel Bottle Green Wool Suit With Large Gold-Tone Logo Rope Buttons - 1992

Regular price £1,200.00

Tax included.

Super Stylish Vintage Chanel Green Suit. This amazing skirt suit by Chanel is made in bottle green wool and dates back from 1992. Impeccably tailored, with paneling and defined waist, it features four front flap pockets. The buttons are very special - large gilt rope style with the iconic ‘CC’ logo in the centre, they are all signed and numbered, in the same way that Chanel jewellery are. The buttons, with all their impact, make the defined silhouette and tailoring more playful, as Chanel would be. Also, the placing of the buttons add an extra touch of fashion. There is a button only on the left side of the lapel. This was a deliberate design decision, as there was never one on the right side (no signs, marks, threads or holes). The most unexpected, yet great detail is the button on the reverse of the collar. This suit was available as a ready-to-wear piece, however, its features and qualities come from the 1992 Haute Couture Runway show. This design of the buttons, the tailoring and the silhouette are references from that show (please refer to pictures). Also the Met Museum have in their archive a Chanel red suit with the same buttons (please refer to pictures). This is a gorgeous and rare piece of high fashion that will definitely still the spotlight.
