Dress Coat

spring/summer 2004

House of Chanel (France, 1913 - present)

Haute couture's attention to detail is quietly apparent in the design of this dress coat. Note the hand-sewn "whip stitches" that affix a fine silk tissue ribbon along the edges of the garment's construction, as well as the uniqueness of the enameled, dome-shaped buttons; each with a crystal center stone.

wool crepe, chiffon
