The oldest surviving French fashion house, Lanvin is a truly legendary and iconic brand in the fashion industry. Taking this into consideration, and the fact that the clothes are always impeccably crafted, it is no wonder that the fashion house is so greatly respected in the industry.

The brand was founded by Jeanne Lanvin, one of the most influential designers of the 1920s and 1930s. Currently, Alber Elbaz serves as the head designer, creative and artistic director of the brand, a title he has held since 2001.

As one of the most secluded, private and interesting designers in the fashion industry, Elbaz highly contributes to the intriguing nature of the Parisian brand.
