Founded in 1889, Lanvin is one of the oldest French fashion houses.
Bearing the name of its founder, Jeanne Lanvin, she began as a milliner in 1885, opened her own boutique two years later, and continued to expand by developing lines for children, women, men, sports, lingerie, perfume and decoration. . Her collections revolving around embroidery, material work, games of transparency and topstitching, reveal her desire to put femininity at the heart of pieces that are both vaporous and structured. The jeweled dresses embroidered with pearls, crystals, feathers, ribbons and grosgrain embody all the refinement of the house. A true muse, his daughter Marguerite inspires him not only his line for children but also the logo, which alone sums up the spirit of the house. Passionate about art and history, Jeanne Lanvin is at the origin of a unique shade, Lanvin Blue, an emblematic color inspired by the frescoes of the Italian painter Fra Angelico.
Drawing on the iconic heritage of Lanvin, Bruno Sialelli, with stays at Balenciaga, Acne Studios and Loewe to his credit, brings to the French house a new vision with an offbeat and vibrant fashion.
