Chanel Runway Look 'Paris - London' Collection Black Lurex Cocktail Dress - 2008

Regular price £1,350.00

Tax included.

Chanel Black Lurex Cocktail Dress Runway Look. This gorgeous dress was designed to feature on the Chanel 2008 Pre-Fall runway show – ‘Paris – London’ Metiers D’Art. This was a collection to reminisce on the close relationship that Coco Chanel had with the UK, especially England and Scotland. Also, this was Karl Lagerfeld’s move to cater to a younger, cool, fashion-oriented, cosmopolitan and wealthy crowd that lives, works, parties and spends (a lot of) money in London. The collection flirts with an edgy romanticism and brings together Britain and France. Made in pleated black lurex, it has 2 bows on the top front and top back of the bodice, as well as one on the waist. It flares out from the waist down. The fabric carries some weight, which gives the dress structure and an undulating hemline. The straps cross on the front. Closure by back zipper. Fully lined. This dress is, as is the collection, beautiful, yet bold and unapologetic.
