Vintage Lanvin Paris Chenille Dress 1970s Size L
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 70s era chenille dress made under the Lanvin Paris New York label. The dress is made up of thin horizontal stripes with alternating colors of teal, pink, ochre, violet and gray against a black base. It has dolman above the wrist length sleeves, peek-a-boo neckline, neck ties and a defined waistline that cinches with a belt. The original belt was no longer with the dress, so I’ve substituted a black cord belt. The dress has no closures and simply fits over the head. It is unlined. Please note that the dress was too large for my mannequin, so was pinned back.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a large size, please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping in mind the style of the dress:
Sleeves: 27 1/2” long from neck opening
Bust: 40”, but difficult to ascertain precisely due to dolman sleeve
Waist: 35” around, but meant to be cinched with the belt
Hips: 40”, but meant to fall loosely
Length: 40”, measured flat
Condition: This dress is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear or staining - it looks to have seen little use and was well cared for.
This is a striking dress by a fashionable Paris design house - unusual fabric and color that is sure to be noticed!
