1970s Lanvin Mod Op Art Oversized Floral Print Jersey Shirt Dress

This vintage Lanvin dress has a brilliant color and print combination on a crisp white 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. I love when I find great examples of these for this time period in the label's history. The dress has long sleeves that pouf out slightly above their buttoned cuffs. It buttons all the way up the front so you have the option of wearing it fully open and over something underneath. The collar is oversized and ends in long points that sit almost in top of the shoulders when the top few buttons are left undone. It falls in a straight line to the hem, widening out very gradually as it nears the bottom. This leave the waist loose and easy. You could easily add a modern belt if you wanted more shape. I love the brilliant, over-sized floral print that covers the dress and the incredible colors that have been used. The fabric is easy to care for and this is a great piece to travel with. Excellent condition.

Unlined and buttons all the way down the front to close with fabric covered buttons. Each cuff buttons to close. The fabric does have some stretch. It appears to have been worn very little if at all
