This is a RARE 1939 fashion illustration for Balenciaga and Lanvin dress designs. They are a both fanciful and exotic, dramatic and alluring. They originally appeared in a sophisticated fashion magazine that featured couture designs for the most chic and demanding women of the time. These dresses show the expertise of the designers; they are draped and yet showcase the female silhouette. They are whimsical yet graceful. The colors are strong and dynamic. This is a perfect vintage print for the fashionista.
The vintage print is 9 ¼ by 12 ¼ inches in size. It is original to 1939 and NOT a recent reproduction. It is in A+ condition. The print comes custom matted in a neutral 16 x 20 inch mat and works perfectly in a standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting.
