Jeanne Lanvin Mini Dress Demi Couture in Scottish Tartan Circa 1968/1970
Mini dress Demi Couture Jeanne Lanvin in Scottish tartan dating from the Yé-yé period of the late 1960s. Thick orange wool knit with green and black check. Straight cut slightly flared with small turtleneck and long sleeves. At the front, two large pockets with folded tabs sewn with a green button. Closure of the dress by zip and hook in the back. Lining in orange nylon. The Tartan became fashionable again under the ambient Anglomania represented by the Beatles at the end of the 60s. Many couturiers of the time declined these rustic checkered stitches such as Pierre Cardin. This is the ready-to-wear version of the designer house Lanvin that was distribute in France. The numbered bolduc can possibly indicate that it is a dress that has participated in a fashion show (?).

Very interesting model in terms of the history of fashion in the twentieth century. No defects to note. Very good condition of color and conservation.
