Detail: Vintage abstract floral hand painted dress and coat ensemble by Karl Lagerfeld for Chloe dating to 1973. Constructed from the finest satin silk crepe, in a palette of champagne, gold, blue, orange, red and green. The full length dress offers a subtle A-line silhouette. 4" popper / hook and eye fastening to side seam. Vent to rear, 15". The coat offers a fuller silhouette with deep slits to the sides, and dolman fluted sleeve construction with single hook and eye collar fastening. An exquisite example of Lagerfeld's early designs for Chloe; the hand painted pieces from this period are extremely rare.
Condition: The coat is in excellent condition. The dress has several faint sunlight blemishes to the front, above the blue printed hemline. These are not overtly visible as they appear on the champagne background. Vintage Condition Guide
1970s: Advances in technology allowed clothing manufacturers to produce uniformity of style, finish and cost. Ready to wear clothing in the early 70s was still classic with streamlined, well cut and uncluttered silhouettes. As the decade progressed, shapes became more body conscious and hemlines varying between knee, calf and full length. One was generally more experimental by mixing colour, print and texture from mass-produced clothing with looks from past decades that referenced the 30s and 40s.
