Description

Black, white, and red print crepe dress with a floor-length skirt, belt with a "Lanvin red" buckle, and a matching scarf with what appears to be both printed and red fabric loops. Sketch also includes a back view of the dress, which shows that the lower half of the bodice is solid red while the upper half is bare, exposing the wearer's skin.
