This is simply a great dress that you will reach for again and again for a whole host of occasions. Its classic late 60s/early 70s shirtdress style keeps it chic, comfortable and seasonless – as does the easy-to-care-for (i.e., just throw it in the machines – or the suitcase) fabric. The vibrant yellow, green, blue and red graphic print pops off a still-crisp white. Large lapels, and matching cuffs and button-front trim add zing with their color-matched but tighter chevron pattern. Equally fabulous for luncheons, business meetings, afternoon cocktails, gallery openings, TSA travel, PTA events,… you get the idea - You will live in this dress. Long Live Lanvin!
• 6 matching covered buttons march up front of dress and 2 close each cuff (and there’s an extra one sewn in under the collar in case one goes missing
• Matching self belt cinches waist

Condition: This garment is in VERY GOOD vintage condition with no rips, odors, stains or holes. The only slight issue that keeps it from being EXCELLENT condition is a small snag/run on the lower front of the dress, approximately 3” long (see last photo) CattWalk's Condition Standards are the same as those used by the Vintage Fashion Guild (see Shop Policies for more on these)

Catt’s Me-yow! – This Would Look Fabulous With:
o CattWalk’s vintage 60s Golden and Crystal Atomic Hydrangea Asteroid Pendant
o Although the self-belt is great and part of the classic look – a wide red leather belt could also be fabulous and spunk it up a bit – add a pair of red loafer pumps with white fringe or tassels
o Navy knee-high boots and coordinating but not matching skin handbag

Please read all Shop Policy info before purchasing items.

Please keep in mind that vintage clothing is, by definition, old. It has most likely been worn before, and it may have signs of wear. I do my best to note any flaws if they exist. Also remember that sizing changes – what used to be considered (and marked) a size 12 may now be more in line with what we think of as a size 6. For this reason, measurements are given for all garments. If you have any questions, please ask before you buy.

All items are offered and sold in "AS IS" condition. All items are measured carefully to ensure accuracy of fit, and all flaws are described so the buyer can make an informed purchase. Please ask any questions you may have on size, condition or any other item aspect prior to placing your order.

More on the Designer: Lanvin: Jeanne Lanvin (1867-1946) opened a millinery shop in Paris in 1890. She became known for the beautiful dresses she was making for her daughter, and so in 1909, Lanvin opened her dressmaking business. By 1915 she had developed the style for which she was most famous, the robes de style. These dresses went against the prevailing style of the time, and featured a small waist and full skirt. Lanvin continued to design the robes de style dresses even in the 1920s. Lanvin died in 1946, and the business was taken over by her daughter, who hired Antonio del Castillo in 1950 to design the collection. During this time, the house became known as Lanvin-Castillo. Castillo left in 1962 and was replaced by Jules-Francois Crahay, who was the head designer from 1963 until 1984. After that time there was a succession of designers including Herve’ Leger and Claude Montana. In 2002, Elber Albaz became chief designer at Lanvin. (primary source: vintagefashionguild.org)
