A Jeanne Lanvin Satin and Silver Lamé Historical Fancy Court Dress numbered 2802



Summer Collection 1939 Paris France A Fancy or Masquerade historical Court dress in the taste of Louis XIII french style. Mantle-dress and skirt in emerald green satin and carmin and gold lamé brocade with striped paisley boteh motifs. Trimmings on the neckline and on the opened skirt with large silver thread lace trims adorned with pearls, rhinestones and beads in blue, green and red tones. Fitted and boned bodice pointed front, openwork silver lamé puffed sleeves lined with blue net. White cotton lining. Cream woven label with design of the House, black and red graphics Jeanne Lanvin Paris Unis-France, and printing of the date of the collection Summer 1939. Numbered on the back of the label 28024. Excellent condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: Equivalent French Size 36/38. Front height 131 cm Back height 157 cm Shoulders 36 cm Collar 36 cm Sleeve 44 cm Chest 80 cm Waist 60 cm Circumference of the skirt 577 cm The testimonials in good condition of fancy dresses are rare. The incursions of French couturiers in the theater and the world of the festival are frequent in the twentieth century. Emphasis is a peculiarity that Jeanne Lanvin will decline in her famous basket style dresses, in complete contradiction with the elusive criteria of the 1920s. From the famous logo of the House Jeanne Lanvin with her daughter Marguerite in a fancy-dress ball (1907), to the famous "Cavallini" dress with a large oversized knot (1925), the taste of masked ball, farce and historical references are a constant in his work.
