We are beyond excited to offer this stunning piece from the Haute Couture Spring 1986 collection. With over 130 hours of handwork, this piece features intricately embellished trims created in Atelier Lesage - one of Chanel's many satellite workshops, where haute couture pieces are skillfully embroidered by hand.
When you look at the photos on the model, you will see how this piece looks under a variety of lighting. The crystals resemble a jewelry store, shining bright like diamonds on the black wool fabric. Very special attention is given to the buttons - they resemble an owl - one of the symbols of the House of Chanel. Each is decorated with a crystal in every eye. The four front pockets are slanted, lined in silk, and decorated with hand-embellished trim. The shoulders are padded, which is in line with 1980s fashion. If desired, the padding can be easily and quickly removed by a skilled seamstress. This piece features the trademark chain at the hem to weigh the jacket down for a perfect fit.
As with every haute couture item, this jacket has its serial number stamped under the label. A number is given to every haute-couture item, even if it comes in a set (e.g. a skirt and a jacket suit will have their unique numbers). There are fewer haute couture customers every year, it is a unique and rare opportunity to own a true Chanel masterpiece designed by Karl Lagerfeld.

: size label is not available for haute-couture pieces because they are cut to the customer's measurements. This piece fits like a FR36 based on bust measurements.
