1980s Numbered Lanvin Brilliant Green & Blue Silk Dress

Buyer Protection Guaranteed


This fabulous little dress is a gorgeous combination of colors and the cut is very sexy. It also has the added bonus of having that magic little number on its label though in this case I think it defines it as a demi-couture or special order dress as I do see machine work on some of the inner seams. It is short and fitted and I love the two colors together - a brilliant emerald green with an equally brilliant royal blue. The blue is only used for the inner skirt that only shows at the back so you get this unexpected shock of color when you turn around. The bodice is fitted and tight to the body and the skirt fitted as well. Over the front is a wide panel of fabric and they way it sits gives the suggestion of a wide full skirt but this is only an illusion. The finish at the back is gorgeous - a tightly spaced row of glossy black faceted buttons. It's stunning and I love the slightly different textures of the two silks used that contrasts the two colors even more. Excellent condition

The bodice is finished in the same fabric as the exterior green and the skirt unlined. Light boning through the bodice and closes with the buttons down the back as shown. Tagged a 40 but please check actual measurements listed.
