1970s Lanvin Printed "Tomato" Halter Jersey Dress
The early seventies saw the house of Lanvin dive full on into the bright and riotous colors of the era and they produced some of the best of the bright, full length maxi dress that you could ask for. This one is particularly great with it's bright and colorful design that features, of all things, giant stylized tomatoes, both whole and cross sectioned, on a black jersey backdrop. I love the long lean silhouette of the dress and the way the vivid colors pop off the jersey and the giant print takes on a art feel. The bodice of the dress is a simple halter style with the straps that curve up and over the shoulders. A second set of straps can be ties around the neck for a clever double strap feel or ties in a bow at the front. The neckline is kept rounded and a keyhole sits at the front for a subtle flash of skin. It looks to have never been worn and the fabric is virtually wrinkle resistant so it is perfect to travel with and wear with no fear of wrinkles. Gorgeous and unique piece. Excellent condition.
Unlined and slips on to wear with an adjustable halter at the front. It is made of a washable poly jersey. Keyhole at the front neckline
