Resort 2011 Snakeskin Print Lanvin Silk Shift Dress

Purposely frayed edges and a whisper light silk in a snakeskin pattern make this wonderful little Resort 2011 Lanvin dress still feel fresh. Under the genius direction of Alber Elbaz, the collection was edgy but simple. Looks 4 & 25 shared the same print and once in production it was a series of simple shifts that went to the shops. I love pieces from the resort collections - designers do a tighter edit and often explore new ideas that may or may not end up on the next catwalk. They also tend to be more creative and production is smaller meaning less pieces are out there. The dress is a single layer of scarf weight silk so weighs almost nothing. The edges at the waist, neck and sleeves are left frayed and de-constructed - a favorite detailing of Alber's work. The shape is simple and easy and the print and color act as a neutral color wise allowing you to go wot pretty much any color for shoes and a bag. At the same time that print makes a statement and take the dress to another level. Excellent condition
