Today, we'll take a look at the house that Jeanne Lanvin built!
(Lanvin, 1915 Design)At a time when the world was going through a Great Depression (between the 1920's and 30's), Lanvin was experiencing exponential growth in business, as a fashion designer.
(Lanvin, 1922 Sketch)She was an early enthusiast for lace, light-weight fabrics and floral prints... and one of her signatures became the "mother-daughter ensemble" of matching attire (as expressed in the label's logo):
(Lanvin, logo)Currently, under the design direction of Alber Elbaz, the house of Lanvin has further established its elite clientele and A-list, cult following; in January 2010, the French postal system (Le Post) issued limited-edition Lanvin stamps, and later that year, in September of 2010, Elbaz offered an exclusive range of discounted designs to the public, via mass-market retailer H&M.

Jeanne Lanvin passed away in 1946, BUT her legacy still lives on, and the house continues to re-awaken with freshness, season after season!
