“For me, the name Lanvin is a memory of young girls in stylish dresses, with whom I first danced the foxtrot, Charleston, and shimmy. At the dances they were always the best dressed.” - Christian Dior.
The period-style dress made a notable contribution to the Lanvin reputation. Radically opposed to the straight look of the 1920s, their narrow waists and ample skirts – in the tradition of the 18th-century crinoline – gave full vent to their maker's romanticism. Here the overlaid petals of the taffeta and lace cockade and the long scalloped ribbons reflect all the virtuosity of the Lanvin workshops. A similar model in green belongs to the Lanvin Estate.
