House of LANVIN

House of LANVIN (2)

Lanvin had a way with accessories that was particularly her own. She loved beautiful Art Deco clutches, fancy rhinestone hair décor, tulle Pierrot collars, and tiny pouches hanging from belts. She also loved perfume. In 1925, the house introduced My Sin, and in 1927, Arpege was introduced. Arpege was developed for Marie-Blanche. The house had branch salons in Nice, Cannes and Biarritz. Her clientele included English princesses, Italian and Romanian Queens, actresses such as Mary Pickford, and Marlene Dietrich. With World War II, like all other fashion houses, Lanvin suffered. All designers were designing young. It was nothing new or fresh.
