A numbered Haute Couture Chanel Skirt and Blouse Suit Circa 1968/1971
Famous and amazing Haute Couture skirt and blouse suit by Gabrielle Chanel dating from the last years of the famous icon of French fashion before 1971. Skirt and jacket in flecked wool tweed in shades of beige, yellow, green, pink and purple. Elegant Georgette silk crepe blouse printed with vibrant psychedelic floral patterns in shades of red, green, brown, black and white. Straight jacket with four flap pockets and lining matching the blouse and weighted by a brass chain inside the lining (which is uncommon). Amazing turtle buttons. Blouse with structured bow-tie and long sleeves with double cuffs. The buttons are hidden by the tab of the blouse. High waist and straight skirt closing at the back by zip and hook lined with pale green silk pongee. Piping of the jacket, the skirt and the blouse in red grosgrain. Old label white background black graphic Chanel inside the jacket and the blouse. There is an illegible handwritten number under the Chanel label. Excellent condition of color and conservation. The lining of the skirt has weaknesses and a stabilization at the waist, otherwise excellent condition.
