Embroidered black silk chiffon evening dress with black slip, designed by Jeanne Lanvin, French, 1925. The basic silhouette on this Lanvin dress evokes religious robes worn by monks while the sheer textile makes it elegant and refined, trademarks of her work. In addition, the Greek key motif shows her knowledge and interest in incorporating classical design motifs in her fashions.
