Authentic vintage Coco Chanel silk blouse bearing the 1980 "Chanel Boutique" label of authenticity and the , "Made in France for Creeds" label.
Two front pockets on this Chanel blouse feature the CC logo.
Full length sleeves end in CC logo buttoned tuxedo cuffs with additional hidden snaps on the tuxedo tips to keep them in the correct position.
Front enclosure by way of 4 gold tone "CC" logo buttons in addition to the lowest clear button and a hidden snap between the first and second button. That lowest button is always of this flat type on Chanel items so that if you tuck your blouse into your pants that you do not tear off a more decorative button.
Although there is no content tag, I can promise you that this item has been constructed using ultra luxurious silk. It is literally otherworldly. Unbelievably soft to the touch.
There are inner shoulder pads that you can have removed, if you so desire.
I would say that there are no flaws because the couple that do exist only show up under severe scrutiny and only then in certain light. Left lapel appears as if a small brooch was worn, a teensy weensy thread on a sleeve and 2 minuscule pics on the left pocket. Honestly, these are so very minor that you truly have to go looking for them to find them. I have provided images of these areas for you.
That master of couture, Karl Lagerfeld designed the interlocking, "CC" Chanel buttons on this blouse.
My camera is unable to really capture the, "essence" of this vintage Chanel blouse. Honestly, it is MUCH better in real life and you will be overwhelmed with it once it arrives at your home and you open your parcel. I promise.
That, "Made in France for Creeds" label means that Creeds in Toronto was the ONLY boutique to ever acquire this design. This is a rare Chanel item. No other boutiques, anywhere in the world carried this design, only Creeds in Toronto sold this.
Creeds & Co. was the first department store in Canada to offer in-store boutiques, introducing heavy hitters such as Christian Dior, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to Toronto. In 1990 Creeds closed its doors.
