A figurine from Lanvin's 120th anniversary collection

Head designer of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz, reportedly had the final say on the plans for the French house's upcoming 120th anniversary. The theme that was in the works and which has just been confirmed centers around that special bond between a mother and daughter. The theme for the celebration was designed as an homage to founder Jeanne Lanvin who was originally made famous for her innovative mother and daughter ensembles. The anniversary collection will include the third in an annual installment of hand-painted porcelain figurines, each one showcasing an affectionate mother and daughter duo painted in Lanvin designs. The other limited edition products will hit retail locations closer to the anniversary at the end of November and will include music boxes, paperweights, notebooks and
embroidered T-shirts — all splattered with brightly colored hearts and anniversary
wishes. Some of products more in step with Lanvin's luxury image will be a repackaged version of the brand's signature Arpege scent, and a honeymoon-themed suitcase which comes packed with a Lanvin sarong, beach sandals, and a white towel embroidered simply with the word, "love."
