Chanel No. 1
A stream of silver paillettes circles the long torsoed bodice and forms cascades along either side and down the front of the skirt in this strapless gown of filmy white tulle.
Chanel No. 2
Spanish influence is felt in this dancing dress: the bodice in black taffeta continues below the waist with a small bow in the back: a provocative turn is given to the sumptuous triple-tiered lace skirt.
And I guess we all know what Chanel No. 5 looks like...

"Pale aqua, a subtle admixture of blue-and-green checked wool in a beautifully slender reefer-and-skirt costume. The coat has a casual elegance, with lion-head brass buttons reminiscent of Chanel, a notched collar faced in sage-green silk. About $110. Victor Joris for Cuddlecoat."
"Faint lilac, a shade delicate as perfumed spring air, in a superbly detailed wool-tweed coat. Note the pocket flaps slightly curved, a half belt joined with a Chanel-like chain. About $60. Faye Wagner for Dani Jrs. We show it accessorized with a lilac silk snood."
"Seafoam green, a frothy mixture of green, blue, and white, in a chenille like blend of wool and cotton. The suit jacket, in the Chanel tradition, is braid-trimmed and brass-buttoned; and the blouse is in this season's important new soft crepe. About $90. Stephan for Briarbrook."
"Powder blue, in a deceptively fragile-looking white-flecked tweed with the delicacy and porousness of lace. The suit jacket has a mere suggestion of a stand-up collar and giant ball buttons; the eased skirt has two slash pockets at the hip line. About $100. Junior Sophisticates."
"Clear-sky blue, in a bold plaid on white, is fashioned into a dashing and dramatic cape costume. The cape, cut to full street length, has a big stand-up collar and fastens in front with outsize tabs of the same fabric. The matching skirt beneath is slim but easy. About $85. Modelia. The tasseled hat, by Adolfo."
"Not quite white, but a rich creamy color, in an elegantly fluid afternoon dress, with a gently lowered waistline accented with heavy welt seaming, a high, cuffed neckline, and raglan sleeves. In lightweight textured wool. About $40. Stephan Ltd. Headline news: The big brim is back; ours is by Halston."
"Faint blush of pink, a marvelously muted shade in a delicate-looking three-piece costume. The jacket of lightweight tweed has accents of quilted pink silk inset in the collar, revers, and pocket flaps. The matching pink silk blouse is collarless. About $60. Frank Adams for Junior Accent."
