This product is unavailable
From the 70s here's a vintage gold lurex and wool knit sweater made under the Lanvin Paris Boutique label. The sweater features vertical ribbing. It is made in a dark brown, almost black, wool that is woven with gold metallic polyester yarn, also known as “lurex”. The sweater has gold banding around its periphery, across the top of the pockets at either side and on the edge of the cuffs. It is made in a long cardigan style and does up with five buttons down the front.
Fabric: 67% Wool / 33% Metallized Polyester
Sizing: French size 40 is indicated, which should correspond to a US size 10, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping in mind that the wool should be stretched somewhat for a tighter fit:
Shoulders: 11” unstretched, stretches out to 16 1/2” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 23 1/2” long Sleeve Inseam: 18 1/2”
Bust: 31” unstretched, stretches out up to 38” around
Waist: 26” around unstretched (could stretch out to 36”)
Length: 24 1/2”
Condition: The sweater is in very good condition with no wear, tear or staining - it looks like it saw little use and was well cared for over the years.
This is a wonderful 70s era sweater by a fashionable Paris design house - excellent quality knit and striking color.
