Lanvin Silver Print Maxi Dress Knit Details, 1970s


Traditionally known for introducing the iconic robe de style the house of Lanvin has undergone several revolutions since its beginning. Notably in the 1960s and 70s, the house explored a more casual and bohemian tempo through the usage of comfortable knits and unconventional prints.

Evocative of this design period, this circa 1972 maxi dress is done in a lightweight knit fabric with lustrous silver threads that give it a subtle yet spectacular glimmer. The fabric incorporates a chevron pattern in tones of goldenrod, brick red, and violet on an ecru ground. Rib-knit details create the high crew neckline and form a wide waistband which breaks up the print while giving the dress additional shape. Matching ribbed cuffs finish the bishop sleeves.

Overall, this dress has a relaxed and comfortable fit that contrasts the stately features of the dress. Easy yet elegant, this Lanvin maxi dress evokes a vintage charm that is perfect for a day-to-night outfit.
