Aren’t these little dolls from Lanvin the cutest thing? They come out with new designs every season, but even more than the clothes I love the moments they seem to capture, like little snapshots into a fashionable life.
The mother/daughter sets are so reflective of how Jeanne Lanvin got her start, sewing clothes for her own daughter that all the other mothers then asked her to copy for their daughters and themselves. They also point to the miniature dolls that Jeanne made to show her new designs as part of the post-war effort to ration fabric. And (perhaps most importantly) they come beautifully packaged in a signature Lanvin blue box.
