Wonderfully Mod dress created by Jeanne Lanvin and executed with authorization by Maria Carine. The black wool dress has a loose shift silhouette, jewel neckline, long sleeves, and falls just above the knee. The bust of the dress features two striking thick horizontal belts of yellow - gold grosgrain ribbon with a functional circular fastening at the center, above the sternum. We love this great bold mod piece with a fun and unusual futuristic edge!
Maria Carine was a skilled modeliste who worked with various couturiers including Lanvin - Castillo, Guy Laroche, Jaques Heim, and Jean Desses. The dress was designed by Lanvin's Antonio del Castillo exclusively for Bonwit Teller, and executed by Maria Carine in France.

This 1970s mod (with a nod to art nouveau revival) dress by Lanvin is absolutely gorgeous! The dress features long, full cuffed sleeves, an exaggerated pointed wing collar, and includes a wide sash belt. The shirtwaist dress buttons from hem to collar. The amazing floral print begins as a woven geometric design that blooms upwards into flowers. The print's vibrant azure blue, apple green, and bold Hollywood pink lie vividly against a white background. Fantastic!
