Chanel Black Blue Strapless Mini Dress Runway, 2013


Always keeping it modern, the Chanel 2013 collection played off of a graphic, geometric aesthetic. Highlighting the simplicity of dots, grids, and gingham, the collection reimagined the mundane and recreated them absolutely à la Chanel. A black and royal blue pique grid forms this modern, strapless mini-dress. Bordered at the top with a ribbed black trim, this dress has a somewhat quilted texture.

With a slightly raised waist, this dress produces a hip accentuating hourglass silhouette. Just above the knee, the rich blue and black transitions into a black mesh caged border that creates a sense of lightness to the otherwise bold tones of the minidress. Near the hem, a Chanel plaque is stitched as a finishing detail. An excellent cocktail option, this dress can be seen as look #35 from that season’s runway.

Size: 38 FR

Size estimate: XS

Measurements: Bust: 31 inches

Waist: 26

Made from a cotton-polypropylene blend this Chanel dress has a stunning texture and subtle luster. The body of the dress is unlined with the hem mesh detail being backed with a nude lining. This lining is not featured in the original runway design and can be easily removed if desired. A concealed side zip and hook-and-eye form the closure. In excellent condition, this dress 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.
