Vintage 1970s Lanvin Dress Paris Street Map Print on Polyester Size 18 XL
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a printed polyester dress made by Lanvin during the 1970s. The dress features a print with names of famous Parisian streets - Faubourg Saint Honoré, Avenue des Champs-Elysées, Avenue de l’Opera, Boulevard Saint Michel, Avenue Foch, etc., all printed in blue against the white background. Interspersed amongst the street names is a partial “Lanvin” in red, I guess less pretentious than if it would appear in its entirety. The dress has an opening that closes with six buttons halfway down the front to the waist. It has a shirt-type collar and cinches at the waist with a matching sash belt. It has short sleeves and is cut fairly straight with a mid-calf length.
Label: Lanvin Paris New York. The care label is faded, but the dress was made in the U.S.A. under license to Lanvin.
Fabric: The label is illegible, but this is most likely 100% polyester.
Sizing: Size 18 is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 18” across from shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Sleeves: 8” long
Bust: 44” around, taken under the armpits
Waist: 40” around, meant to be cinched with the belt
Hips: 42” around
It is in very good condition with no pulls or pronounced wear, tear or staining.
This is a great example of 70s period Lanvin - fun print, sure to be noticed on your next trip to Paris!
