Chloé Karl Lagerfeld Pink Yellow Lace Top & Skirt Set, 1990s
Egyptian-born, French fashion designer Gaby Aghion founded the house of Chloé in 1952. Named after one of Aghion’s closest friends, Chloé was developed and thence stands as one of the pioneers in introducing luxury pret-a-porter fashion. From 1966 to 1983, now notorious German-born designer Karl Lagerfeld served his first stint as a designer for Chloé which invited some of the most influential design moments for the brand.
Even during this time, Lagerfeld contributed design work for other renowned fashion houses including Valentino and Fendi. Lagerfeld possesses a wealth of creativity that has been carefully honed and calculated to serve each brand he designs for, as can be seen in this magnificent Chloe top and skirt set.
Done in pink and green lace and mustard yellow silk, this skirt and top set is a delicate, feminine confection that features a floral paisley design. The top begins with a plunging V neck and short, elasticized sleeves. The short, fitted bodice is elasticized below the bust to match the sleeves and grazes the waistband of the skirt with a scalloped lace hem. The back of the bodice is set with the most beautiful button closures that appear to be made of glass or Lucite, set with a band of gilt and a luminous pearl in the center of each button.
Bust: 32-34 inches
Length: 16 inches
Waist: 25-26 inches
Hips: 34-36 inches

The straight skirt sits lower on the waist and is fully lined in mustard yellow silk which allows the paisley design to stand out even more. The scalloped lace hem of the skirt falls a few inches above the knee, creating a classic silhouette. At the center back of the skirt, a small slit allows for greater ease of movement while adding another risqué element to this dainty ensemble. A unique addition to the discerning fashion lover’s wardrobe, this set is the perfect choice for a luncheon, cocktail party, or special occasion.
This enchanting Chloe by Karl Lagerfeld top and skirt set is in excellent condition and has been professionally eco dry cleaned and pressed. The top is partially lined and has button closures at the back. The skirt is fully lined and has a button and zipper closure at the back.
