Chanel Pleated Rainbow Cropped Blouse Top Runway Spring 2014


While Chanel famously proclaimed her garments to be the Ford of fashion, plain and practical, Karl Lagerfeld in later years was certainly not shy about pushing the envelope at times and creating fun and vibrant looks for the house. Inspired by the joyful colors of artists such as Koons, the Spring 2014 collection was an extravaganza of expressive looks.

From this collection, this lightweight silk blouse is horizontally pleated throughout creating neat rows that complement the print of the fabric. In stunning hues of green, yellow, orange, purple, blue, and red, swatches of color appear to be brushed across the white silk creating rainbow gradients throughout.

The neckline is graced with a wide pointed collar that gives this blouse a preppy vibe. From the shoulders, a simple pleated cap sleeve echoes the texture of the blouse. Ending just below the bust, this blouse has a relatively loose fit and is a posh option for a look that needs a burst of color. It can be seen in the featured images as look #81 from that season’s runway.

Throughout the print, purple CC logos can be found adding a bit of an extra detail. The pleats on the blouse have been stitched down to keep them in place and the edges have been finished with an exposed serge adding to the artsy look of this garment.

This blouse closes at centre front with covered buttons that match the blush stroke print of the fabric. Fully lined and in excellent condition, this top has been professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed. High-quality vintage pieces like this are yours to live in and love while increasing in value every year. It’s never too soon to start collecting them, as an investment in your wardrobe—and in yourself.
