CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE 1920s-inspired "ribbon"... - Lot 9 - Maurice Auction
CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE 1920s-inspired "ribbon" dress with sequins, Spring-Summer 1991 A fine 1920s inspired sequined 'ribbon' dress, Spring-Summer 1991 labelled and numbered 69323, lavishly embroidered by Montex with matt-black sequins, with textured zig-zag bands to neckline and hem, the skirt formed from black satin ribbons applied with sequins in moiré effects, the neckline and hem edged with coils of stacked sequins which produce a looped ribbon effect, floating sequined satin ribbons to shoulders, bust 86-92cm, waist 78cm, 31in It took 150 hours to make the dress and a further 250 hours for the embroidery. This particular look was inspired by the famous 1926 Coco Chanel model with floating 'ribbon' fronds to the hem. Presumably in hommage to the founder, ribbon hems were a feature of this collection not only for evening but for day suits also. Linda Evangelista wore this look on the runway.
