Who Is Lanvin? Pronunciation, Quotes and Where to Buy

Lanvin is a French multinational high fashion house, which was founded by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889. It is the oldest French fashion house still in operation.

Lanvin is pronounced lahn-vahn. Don’t say ‘lan’ as in English but more like a soft ‘lon’ sound. The ‘vin’ is pronounced slightly shorter and sharper than the first.

Jeanne Lanvin was famous for creating the unfitted, chemise-style flapper dress. The French haute couture fashion designer died on July 6, 1946.

Our logo for Lanvin is a mother and a daughter. I’ve always said, ‘It’s not a lion, and it’s not a horse. It’s a mother and a daughter.’ I find the logo very emotional – Alber Elbaz

In 1990, Lanvin was taken over by the Orcofi Group, then sold to l’Oréal in 1996. In 2001, Shaw-Lan Wang, a Taiwanese media magnate, took Lanvin private again.

One woman told me that every time she wears Lanvin, men fall in love with her. Another told me she wore Lanvin to face her husband’s lawyer because she felt protected. If I can make men fall in love with women and if I can protect women, I think I can die peacefully – Alber Elbaz

On 14 March 2016, Bouchra Jarrar was appointed as Creative Director for Women’s Collection, replacing Alber Elbaz, who had transformed the company over the previous fourteen years. Ms. Bouchra’s departure was announced on July 6, 2017.

I spend my time backstage at the Lanvin shows, and when I come out at the end, all I see are people’s eyes – Alber Elbaz

She was succeeded as artistic director by Olivier Lapidus, who left the company without a named successor on March 22, 2018. Men’s Collections have been headed by Lucas Ossendrijver since 2005.

In January 2019, Bruno Sialelli, who was previously the head of menswear at Spanish house Loewe, was appointed Creative Director of the Lanvin women’s and men’s collections. Lucas Ossendrijver left the fashion house in November 2018, after 14 years as menswear artistic director.
