1970s Lanvin Deep Red & White Jersey Floral & Stripe Print Dress

This vintage Lanvin dress is an unusual color combination of a deep red mixed with white and unexpected pops of purple. 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 has a higher cut, scooped neckline and long straight cut sleeves. The waist is cut loose and easy and the definition is more a visual one from the stripes that circle the waist. You can add a belt if you want it further defined but I prefer it left without so the line is long and lean. The skirt falls to the floor and slightly widens as it nears the hem so you get a little volume. That same stripes design detail used at the waist anchors the hem. I love how those stripes contrast against the floral print and are used to define the shape and cut of the dress. The fabric is easy to care for and this is a great piece to travel with. Excellent condition
