Late 1970s Hot Pink & Velvet Lanvin

Such a sensual and rich piece - this late 70s Lanvin cocktail dress is just divine! Inky black velvet is used to make the dress with a shocking contrast with the hot pink inset at the bodice for maximum drama. The skirt is a modification between a tulip and a pencil - its fitted and chic but has soft gathers through the waist that are deceptive in that it appears slim but actually has quite a bit of fabric that just drapes perfectly and slightly exaggerates the female form. The waist nips in and you can cinch it with that fabulous wide fabric belt. The belt is velvet on one side and backed in that hot pink silk satin so once you belt it the pink has a flash that carries the bodice color down and through. The bodice is gorgeous - again the hint of a flower is used in the design - it almost unfolds like a petal revealing that insanely fabulous Schiaparelli pink inset. A rhinestone studded belt buckle finishes with the perfect amount of glitz. Wonderful piece and in excellent condition.
