1970's Lanvin Iconic Paisley Mink Fur Russian Haute-Couture Gown

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This extremely rare Lanvin Haute-Couture evening gown, in the most stunning paisley-wool and genuine mink-fur, is a statement dress. I love the beautiful mix of textures and regal russian-princess vibe. It manifests opulence and makes you feel confident. Shaped with princess-line seams flaring out below the waist in a full circle skirt, the figure flattering cut adds fullness to the skirt without adding bulk in the hips. The gown is fully-boned and lined in gorgeous sage-green silk. Under the direction of Jules Francois-Crahay, Lanvin was a playground for pattern. This iconic gown is a perfect example of this. 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 and impeccable ornamentation above all else.
