Believe it or not the house of Lanvin is 120 years old! In the past few years the brand has enjoyed a renewed popularity amongst fashionistas, and we couldn’t be happier. Of course we are fans of the house of Lanvin inspired by the Impressionists and founded by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. The brand is famous for its pretty delicate palette, detailed trimmings, embroideries and embellishments. Lanvin’s designs experienced a wide popularity in the 1920’s and ’30s and became an icon of roaring ’20s feminine Parisian chic. Today designer Alber Elbaz’s modern touches to the house of Lanvin bring a luxurious edge to its trendsetting designs.
That is why we love these anniversary totes from Lanvin. Celebrating 120 years, the sketches on each tote represent the porcelain figurine dolls created as a special collectible. The Miss Lanvin doll shown here is a limited edition and is adorned with a mini pearl necklace and jumps out of a crystal encrusted cake. The Miss Lanvin 17″ doll is Â£325.00 from Browns London.
There are three”120 years” printed Lanvin tote bags, each with a different sketched design and embellished by a pretty grosgrain ribbon handle. The printed design is on both the front and back of each tote and is lined with a coordinating fabric to match the ribbon. Inside you’ll also find a zippered pocket. It comes in three designs including: 120 years printed tote, ‘Love You’ printed tote and the 120th’ Birthday printed tote. All are priced at $800 at Net-a-Porter.
