An extremely gorgeous one-of-a-kind Lanvin Haute Couture metallic gold lamé cropped jacket dating back to the late 1970's. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; sparkling gold snakeskin patterned lamé lavishly embroidered with colorful chain-stitch flowers and vinery. This work must have taken weeks to complete. Exquisite beadwork in matching hues adds beautiful depth and texture. I love the chic puff-shoulders and lean, long sleeves. The open front body-skimming shape really adds to the jacket's allure. It is an exquisite example of wearable luxurious from one of the most important houses of the modern era. We added many pictures so you can see how special this garment is. Lanvin may be the oldest fashion house in Paris, but it has also managed to remain one of the most relevant.
This stunning Lanvin haute couture numbered 90490 jacket is in excellent condition with no rips, holes or noticeable stains. The inside is fully-lined. Only signs of age are minor wear to the inside lining and a few missing beads. This work of art was custom made for Suzanne Godart Cella who was born in 1923. This rare piece of fashion history is highly wearable and an investment piece that will continue to increase in value.
