Oh my lord, this vintage Chanel silk dress couldn't be more Princess Diana if it tried. I can totally see her wearing this, it really wouldn't surprise me if there was a picture of her somewhere wearing an identica one, it is very much what her style was when she was with us in the late 70s early 80s. It is also a pretty unusual style for Chanel, not like their more easy to spot looks that's for sure, yet it is so evocative of the Diana and Thatcher years in the UK. A piece of history. It has removable white Peter Pan collar and cuffs, they are pictured here just pinned on, but are easily tacked into place. I warrant a guess they were removed for cleaning purposes.

  • It is a pleated shirt waister silk dress in a dark blue and brown paisley printed fabric with the iconic Chanel logo gold tone buttons.
  • Vintage 80s designer dress by Chanel Boutique.
  • Box pleated skirt from the hips and the bodice is pleated on the left hand side,.
  • Long sleeves with three designer Chanel logo gold buttons at the cuff and of course the removable white fold up cuffs, which are held in place with a pin at the moment.
  • Fitted waist with the bodice blouse top half can billow over, giving the illusion of it being a two piece skirt and blouse.
  • Button front fastening with the same logo buttons.
  • Fully lined.
  • Pussy Bow tie at the neckline, so very 80s!
  • The main fabric is pure silk.
  • I have pictured both with and without the collar and cuffs so you can see the difference and decide for yourself if you would like to sew them back on.
