Suzy Menkes: Jeanne Lanvin Exhibition

A gorgeous silk moiré Robe de Style from 1927 with an intricate beaded design. Made by Jeanne Lanvin, this gown was worn by Mrs. Charles S. Dewey when presented at the court of Saint James. This cut of dress was a popular alternative for the straight-cut frocks during the Flapper Era. The skirts were full while the bodice could either be straight or fitted. Sometimes the fullness of the skirt was even supported with eighteenth century-like paniers or hoops! This is only one of the couture…
