1970s Lanvin Bright Printed Dot & Stripe Jersey Dress

This vintage Lanvin dress has a bright color and print combination on a black base. The jersey fabric it is made of was considered one of the new "miracle fabrics" of the day as they gave women the option to wash and wear and travel with pieces that needed little or no ironing once you arrived at your destination.  Lanvin began producing pieces from these jerseys in the early 1970s to appeal to their younger, jet set clients and I love when I find great examples of these and this time period in the label's history. The dress is sleeveless with a higher cut neckline for balance. The collar extends out to long ties at the back. The waist is cut loose and easy and the definition is given by the braided black belt that come with the dress. The belt has fabulous tassels at each end. If you decide not to belt it the line is long and lean. The skirt falls to the floor and slightly widens as it nears the hem. I love how those stripes contrast against the dot print and are used to define the cut of the dress. The fabric is easy to care for and this is a great piece to travel with. Excellent condition with one small note below.

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper that sits below a keyhole and the collar closes with hook & eye and the attached ties. One tie is longer then the other but falls even if you tie it with the longer side looping. Has its original tie belt. Note that there are some very faint marks in a couple of the dots around the waist. This was taken into consideration when pricing.
