Wrapped in Paillettes

This fabulous black one shoulder Chloe gown comes from the Lagerfeld era. There are large swaths of high pile fuchsia paillettes over fuchsia chiffon covering the top and bottom of the gown. The paillettes are applied in such a way that they appear to be piled on top of one another. When the light hits the paillettes they sparkle like a fuchsia mirror ball. The majority of the gown is constructed from black silk crepe, the paillettes wrap around the bust, and come up from the bottom ending at a point in the back of the dress.




Chloe Lagerfeld era black silk crepe dress with fuchsia paillettes, c.1970's. Contemporary size 4.
