Chanel Lion Camellia Logo Sleeveless Mini Shift Dress
Chanel was in many senses modern, fun-loving, and direct. Her style followed. With clean lines, a subdued color palette, and no unnecessary bells and whistles, Coco Chanel developed the aesthetic precedent for ‘less is more’. This perspective on fashion is one that continues in her house to this day.
A take on the iconic little black dress, this circa 2010 Chanel mini dress is done in a light cotton fabric featuring motifs of sketched lions, florals and the Chanel logo in white with an ever so slight tinge of peach on a faded background reminiscent of watercolor. The rounded-square neckline is bound, adding a bit of directional contrast as the short bodice quickly arrives upon the empire waistline. From there the skirt falls in a subtle A-line reaching only to mid-thigh level. A staple silhouette, this dress is widely versatile as it can function for cocktail, business with a nice blazer, or for an easy day out.
