Chanel Shimmer Black V Neck Bow Dress Runway 2013
At the start, Chanel famously dressed “the modern woman” however over time, the house of Chanel transformed to represent a sophisticated old-world elegance and charm unparalleled by any other house. The now late Karl Lagerfeld through his reimagination of the classics and only subtle injections of trendiness kept the legacy of Chanel alive for many decades.
From the Spring 2013 collection, this dress evokes the 1960s with a soft U-neckline feminine bow detail at the bust. It is made from a cotton and Lycra chunky pique that gives it a slight lustrous appearance. On the back, a mid-back V-neckline culminates in a matching bow detail as the front.
Apart from these details, a simple semi-hourglass silhouette finishes at a knee-length hem with ¾ sleeves that brandish the interlocking CC Chanel logo. With hidden in-seam side pockets, this dress is the perfect vintage inspired little black dress and can be seen on that season’s runway as look #11.
