Gorgeous Lanvin 2008 silk sheath dress with a Surplice v-neckline, banding at the empire waist, and elegant gathered, pleated detailing. The cut of the chest is very elegant, set a little wide.
The fabric has an artisanal treatment that lends a stonewashed effect, making the color of the satin a bit hard to describe. It's a steel grey color but almost looks golden at times.
I do feel like it looks more grey/silver-steel in person. The lining and banding at the empire waist is solid black, and the zipper is a steel/gun-metal color. Silk is flawless - no snags or pulls anywhere.
Hidden snap closure under zipper. Fully lined in black 100% Silk. Last photos shows tags from a listing for the same style dress, but does not depict the actual dress I have for sale.
