1970s Lanvin Knit Tangerine Halter Dress

The early seventies saw the house of Lanvin dive full on into the brights and vivid beautiful colors and the result was some of the best dresses that you could ask for! This one is the perfect combination of color and cut. The silhouette is long and lean with a barely there bikini feel top. The simplicity of the cut is balanced by that gorgeous bright tangerine! The top halter portions slightly ribbed knit which is set atop a knit jersey skirt. The skirt flows down to the ground in a beautiful A-line that creates length and leanness. 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! Excellent condition
