Lanvin celebrates 120 years with Arpège

Sep 8, 2009

1889 – 2009, Lanvin is celebrating its 120th anniversary this year. For the occasion the mythic perfume from the brand, Arpège, is being released in limited edition.

Arpège for the 120th anniversary of Lanvin

The history in brief: in 1889 a young fashion designer, just beginning, curious and inspired – Jeanne Lanvin – founded what would go on to become one of the most elegant fashion houses in Paris. A visionary, she created a world which took in fashion, perfumes and décor.

120 years later another passionate designer is in control of the house. Alber Elbaz, a sincere, intuitive and sparkling man has succeeded in restoring Lanvin to its previous noble heights.

For an exceptional date there is now planned an exceptional event. With a touch of humour and a lot of delicacy, Alber Elbaz has chosen to mark the moment by highlighting mothers and their daughters. From October, the perfume Arpège will be covered in images of Lanvin couture and each box will have a sketch by Alber Elbaz on it. These real fashion sketches place Jeanne and her daughter Marguerite in modern day Paris. Inside the packaging, the classic Arpège ball remains unchanged, staying faithful to its black flask.
