As the oldest French couture house founded in 1889, Jeanne Lanvin's exquisite, feminine designs soon became the house's signature, embodying impeccable taste and Parisian elegance. Currently under the creative direction of Alber Elbaz, Lanvin continues to live up to its prestigious name, taking sleek, modern touches inspired by the art world and combining it with classic French design. Lauded for his incredible technical skill and experimentations with volume, Elbaz is also credited with the innate ability to produce clothing women always want to wear, continuing the long standing tradition of the house.
