Lanvin is the oldest French couture house, founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin. In the late 19th and early 20th century, she developed the quintessential French fashion house with a comprehensive approach to lifestyle including perfumes, fashion and design.
Since 2001, the owners have worked to return this major French name to it’s former prestige. The brand is a reference for French luxury across all continents with its perfumes, fashion and accessories.
Feminine, chic, posh, sophisticated and sexy are terms one affiliates with Lanvin. These attributes are embodied by the Lanvin Aumoniere Satin Pochette. This darling black satin bag features drawstring opening and a raw-edged silk fuchsia flower embellishment that reminds me of my favorite spring flower, the Peony. A gold-tone metal chain strap provide a bit of shine. An interior patch pocket helps keep items in place.
I can imagine a sublime French lady sitting in an outdoor café enjoying an espresso in the afternoon sun as pedestrians pass by an comment on her ethereal beauty! I could also imagine myself carrying this to a ladies lunch or as the perfect accessory to a daring little black dress while out for the evening!
This adorable bag measures 10” x 7” with an 18” strap drop. $750 at NET-A-PORTER.COM.
