Under the helm of artistic director Alber Elbaz, Lanvin is now one of the powerhouses of Paris fashion, and his respectful nod to the origins and founding aesthetic of Lanvin is tempered by an unrivaled, transformative energy that has created a new, youthful audience for the house.

One of the pillars of Elbaz’s work, apart from staging dynamic runway presentations, is a unique way of presenting his designs in the windows of Lanvin flagship stores, most notably in the boutique on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.  These mises-en-scène, which change every month, are well regarded as elaborate spectacles unique even in the fantastically creative world of fashion.

Alber Elbaz shares, by his handwritten notes, the stories of the characters and individuals who appeared in the Lanvin world.  The book showcases the fashion and spirit of Lanvin with nearly two hundred compositions, from those shown at their boutiques, to one-offs at the Crillon, and as far afield as Art Basel in Miami, as well as unpublished renderings of concepts hand-drawn by Elbaz.

LANVIN: I LOVE YOU collects these mesmerizing tableaux into a book that any admirer of Lanvin, and any who have yet to discover, will love to own.

To celebrate the launching of the new book, what better than a big feast… without calories!
