One of the oldest established fashion houses in Paris, LANVIN, was founded by Jeanne Lanvin. At sixteen she became an apprentice milliner at Madame Felix in Paris then she went on to train as a dressmaker. This early experience solidified Lanvin’s grounding in fashion. She shunned high society events and instead focused on combining motherhood with her career pursuing her own ambitions. This decision allowed her to follow her own path where she created unique and eye-catching outfits for her daughter resulting in her creating ‘fashion for children’. This led to children’s clothing becoming her first LANVIN line. Launching the fashion house in 1909, mothers were immediately won over by the stylish designs for kids and they requested similar clothing for themselves.
LANVIN built a reputation for femininity and simplicity and liked to use Grecian lines for youthful figures. These core inspirations are still present within LANVIN’s work today with distinctive shapes and colours, each frame is versatile and multifaceted for the modern-day woman. LANVIN glasses mix both acetate and metal accents in order to create unique frames striking feminine translucent accents. LANVIN eyewear is totally sophisticated, elegant and classy.
