The Return of Lanvin

IMG_3449-1

As a history buff, the Lanvin label has always been a favorite of mine. Not only is it the oldest fashion house still in business (circa – 1893), but the fashion illustrations of founder Jeanne Lanvin’s designs continue to serve as beautiful inspiration for an amateur. Since celebrated designer Alber Elbaz was pushed out from the label in 2015, things have looked bleak for the elegant French brand, now under Chinese ownership. But, its latest show, under new 31-year-old designer Bruno Sialelli, has been a critical success, so truly hoping fashion history survives. Beautiful Lanvin pieces can still be found online at The Real Real and at Tucson’s Posh Boutique.
