Chloé One Shoulder Black Silk Flowing Train Gown With Chanel Camellia Brooch
Designer Clare Waight Keller once said of Chloé founder Gaby Aghion that “she wanted women to feel wonderful in her clothes.” This stunning gown by the 65-year-old Parisian brand captures that empowering and freeing spirit. In it, three layers of gorgeous silk flow together.
They are cut on the bias to create a one-shoulder silhouette that crosses the body gracefully in the front and creates a pretty cascade of ruffles in the back. The sheer and solid stripe at the exterior accentuates the softness and easiness of the look, as does the train that drapes unwittingly at the floor. Accessorizing the dress is a lovely Chanel camellia brooch, added by the original owner to enhance the drama of the feminine lines.
Size estimate: M
Bust: 36 inches
Waist: Up to 30 inches
Hips: 38 inches
Front length: 57 inches measured from shoulder to hem
Back length: 75 inches at longest point
