This extremely gorgeous Lanvin Haute Couture rose-garden floral print gown dating back to the late 1970's. I love the beautiful mix of purple, orange and yellow colors. As shown, the elegant bodice wraps over in a Grecian goddess vibe. I love that strapless draped side-bow design. The figure flattering cut skims the hips while creating texture with a flirty side flutter. Though the silhouette looks effortless, this garment is complete with couture level interior boned structure. We added many pictures so you can see how special this garment is. Lanvin may be the oldest fashion house in Paris, but it has also managed to remain one of the most relevant. Through many years and many designers, it has stayed true to the vision of its founder, Madame Jeanne Lanvin, always valuing fine craftsmanship above all else.

This stunning Lanvin haute couture numbered 338 silk chiffon dress is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or stains. The inside is immaculate and complete with bodice boning. Perfectly working side handset metal-zipper. Though I am not confident to state an exact year, the silhouette mirrors that from 1976. To support my dating, the MET archives state, "Jules-François Crahay was the master of flou, or soft dressmaking. He was the head designer during this time and had a predilection for the bias, the loose drapery, and the floating effect. The House of Lanvin was originally associated with the romantically feminine styles of its eponymous founder, Jeanne Lanvin. With Crahay, the house emphasized designs that sought to enhance the personal style of the client. The flattering effect of his classical gowns conforms to the Crahay's belief in garments that express the natural grace and individuality of the wearer over the caprice of the designer." This dress is highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
