Fabulous 1970s Lanvin Graphic Print Jersey Jumpsuit
This is a seriously fabulous jumpsuit by one of my favorite labels - the iconic house of Lanvin. In the late 60s and early 1970s these washable, stretch jerseys were the new miracle fabrics and Lanvin did an amazing range of items made from it in graphic and brilliant colors. Girls bought them in droves and they appealed to their younger, jet set clients who wore them to travel, dance in and pretty much everything else. You see the dress versions of these more often but I have a soft spot for the more rare and hard to find jumpsuits they did. This one, with its graphic black and white print and long, lean lines has to be one of the best I have yet to have. The black and white design covers the fabric from the top of the collar to the bottom of that fabulous hem of the pant legs. The print is set vertically so you get this wonderful long and lean line. It buttons at the front so you can choose to wear it as low as you dare. The sleeves are long and lean and the collar appropriately pointed. The original tie belt cinches in the waist and adds a pop of contrast since the print here is set black on white rather then the white on black of the jumpsuit. The final result is one long, supermodel silhouette. Excellent condition.
The jumpsuit is unlined and closes down the front with matching fabric covered buttons. It comes with it's original matching fabric belt. The jersey has some stretch and the measurements given below are the comfortable range when lying flat. It will fit a larger variety of sizes because of the cut and just be looser and more draped on a smaller girl and more fitted on a larger
