The CHANEL Summer Haute Couture Collection of 1986 was Karl Lagerfeld's ode to Coco Chanel with a myriad of personal details. Chanel often paired her ingenious chain belts with her tweeds, dresses and couture elevating the links to a timeless classic necessity of chic women in the know. Karl Lagerfeld’s interpretations of this classic evolved this simple yet extravagant accessory to the key finishing touch of any outfit. This precious jewel goes above and beyond the simple chain belt. Firstly, only a very few were ever produced of this elusive Haute Couture model. Next, the substantial weight, the flawless condition of the gold plating and the quality of this necklace/ belt is unparalleled. Generously long, wear it as a double-layered necklace, choker-style! 14 Massive CHANEL symbols, all dear to Coco will wrap your waist with the ultimate status of pure exclusivity. The talisman of lucky four leaf clovers, the esoteric scarab signifying eternal life and protection for the wearer, the regal profile of Coco and a jumbo CC dangle charm are the symphony of this early CHANEL treasure. A memorable runway moment in CHANEL history featured this belt worn by muse, Ines de La Fressange strutting down the runway with her personal pet Labrador dog who was a star mainstay in a myriad of 1980s CHANEL ads and runway. Lustrous, gleaming gold as vibrant as the day it was made! A golden treasure, if there ever was one!
