The blue forget-me-not color of Lanvin packaging is hard to miss. Neither is the exquisite satin bow that is included on many of the boxes. It is safe to say that almost any girl would be elated to receive a gift housed in such a pretty box. Even if it is a gift she gives herself.
Fashion guru and artistic director Alber Elbaz is the man behind not only Lanvin packaging, but the designs as well. The multi-talented Elbaz was hired to revamp the Lanvin brand in 2001. Jeanne Lanvin started her couture clothing business in the early 1900’s, making Lanvin the oldest fashion house that is still in business. We aren’t surprised that Lanvin’s brand has continued to blossom over 100 years.
With mens and women’s clothing, accessories and children’s clothing to offer, your whole family could be draped in chic. One will see Elbaz sporting his trademark oversized glasses and big bow tie and realize that he just wants to have fun with life and with this brand. Elegance and art with a touch of whimsy is never out of style.
Lanvin clothing is not hard to spot. Elbaz’s use of draping and bows are his signature moves, while choosing bright, happy colors for the Lanvin palette. His accessories are equally to-die-for. This leather laser cut snake print clutch is our favorite handbag because it literally goes with any outfit. Day or night, casual or fancy, this clutch will always make the cut.
This past season, Elbaz showcased both his talent for illustration and his playfulness in these Russian nested dolls. Each of the six dolls boasts a design Elbaz drew himself. Now THAT is a great gift for a little girl who loves Lanvin.
