Chloé wool crepe halter dress & coat, c.1985
The top-line ready-to-wear house Chloé is luxurious, romantic, and quintessentially French. This marvelous ensemble is an exemplar the Chloé style. I love the pairing of a classically tailored coat with a sexy, flirty, bias-cut halter dress: refined ladylike styling with a super sexy dress covers all the bases!
Made from lightweight black wool crepe, the sexy, wrap-around bias-cut dress is unlined, allowing it to mold to the figure. The surplice-style dress has long ties that wrap around and tie in back. Lined with black China silk, the coat,features set-in front pockets and closes in front with portrait buttons.
The air conditioner should be on before you enter the room with the coat unbuttoned. You will definitely raise the temperature a couple of degrees in this bombshell of a dress. Men cannot help themselves: they are drawn to a woman who intimates the seductive excitement of the evening. This is an ensemble for such a woman.
The coat was originally owned by a New York lady who appreciated cutting-edge design. The labels in the coat and dress read Made in France/Chloé.
The condition is excellent. Buy it and wear it!
The size is marked 40. The wrap-around dress is adjustable. The coat measures: 40" bust, 36" waist, 16 1/2" from sleeve cap to sleeve cap, 21" sleeve length, and 34" from shoulder to hem.
