c.1974 Lanvin Bright Purple & Green Printed Jersey Full Length Maxi Skirt

This vintage Lanvin skirt would have been designed by Belgian-born Jules-Francois Crahay, who headed the Lanvin ateliers from 1964-1984. He has been "noted as one of fashion’s great colorists with his colorful patterns making his 1970s Lanvin designs hugel​y ​desirable and influential." His realm is one of my favorites for the house and the period through the late sixties and into the 70s in particular. He was a genius at print and color and he pushed the envelope in terms of using the "new" jerseys available during this time period. This skirt has a boutique label present

This skirt has such a bright mix of color and print. 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 skirt falls to the floor and slightly widens as it nears the hem. There is a band of a more fitted part that wraps around the low waist with a seam under that the the lower part of the skirt is set into. I love the print pop art floral print and that color combo of purple and green with pop so a vivid pink. The skirt feels fuller in person. Excellent condition
