Good condition, hem was raised and re-lowered.I can't be sure if this is the original hem length as the hem finish is not original. Hem is nicely done by hard rolled egdes but usually wuth Lanvin there is a machined hem edge, something has been unpicked from the skirt - possibly a decorative ribbon band? Overall good condition
