CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE Ball gown in pink-grey taffeta, Spring-Summer 1999 A shot pink-grey taffeta ballgown, Spring-Summer 1999, labelled and numbered 78050, comprising: a polonaised skirt with graduated, trained hem, internal tapes and rings to skirt lining to produce the desired skirt gathers, separate bodice with asymmetric neckline, both adorned and closed with small self covered buttons, bust approx 86cm, 34in, waist 66cm, 26in (2) It took 160 hours to complete this dress. See lot 203 for the 18k gold chain belt by Ibu Poilâne from this collection that could be worn with this dress. Alternatively, Madame Ayoub also chose to wear lot 199 the gold disc belt from the previous season with this dress. Lagerfeld told Women's Wear Daily, 'In the same outfit the body is defined at the top, but the shape is softened at the waist and through the legs. It's hot and cold'. Unusually, he chose a pale palette of pastel pinks and greys predominatnly for this collection. Although the lines and finishings of the collection were very simple and contemporary in feel, Lagerfeld's historicism with design is demonstrated by the polonaise tapes, popular in the late 18th century.
