House of Lanvin - 1924
Seeking in both the new cylindrical silhouettes and in her characteristic robes de style to adorn flat planes with new designs associated with Art Deco, Lanvin developed a repertoire of motifs at once modern and decorative. Black cutouts are stitched by hand to a contrasting white dress. The design is even further integrated into the dress by the stitching’s being hidden under the edge of the appliqué, thus making it appear a pieced rather than an applied patterning.
