Leonard Fashion Paris One Shoulder Draped French Blue Jersey Maxi Dress, 1970s

About

This fabulous 1970s Leonard one shoulder maxi dress is a find! It is constructed of a sleek maxi length dress that is cut from a french blue synthetic jersey and has a long side hem vent. Attached to that dress at the shoulder is a shawl made from Leonard's signature floral print silk jersey. It is signed LEONARD throughout and drapes to under the arm and attaches at the shoulder top back. Gorgeous colour palette from sky blue to pink and mint green. The dress is unlined, slips on to wear and buttons up with three silk jersey covered buttons at the left shoulder. The draped jersey shawl cascades down for the ultimate Grecian goddess feel. The dress is very easy to style – a change of shoe takes it day to night in a breath. Perfect for traveling too! Labeled "LEONARD FASHION PARIS Made in France" and tagged a French vintage size 1. Comes with a sewn-in spare button. Léonard was founded when Jacques Léonard asked Daniel Tribouillard in 1958 to join the company as the designer of a new business, Léonard Fashion. In 1968, Tribouillard presented his first collection of printed silk jersey dresses with a slogan emphasizing the lightness of the fabric: "The Léonard Dress: 150g of happiness". Only a few years later, the House began to produce silk scarves, ties and perfumes. Léonard is known for their vibrant coloured floral prints. Excellent vintage condition. Few tiny yellowish spots on the dress at bust level under the shawl. Not visible when worn. May come out with additional dry cleaning. Bust: 76 cm – 29.9" unstretched (from side seam to side seam) Waist: 76 cm – 29.9" unstretched Hips: 90 cm – 36.2" unstretched Length: 142 cm – 55.9" from left shoulder to hem Vent: 50 cm – 19.7" from hem up Measurements for bust, waist and hips are taken flat across from side seam to side seam and then doubled.
