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. Partially colored. Model appears to be smoking a cigarette.
