Lanvin
This is a sumptuous book full of inspiration to any budding designer or anyone with an interest in Haute Couture. I had no idea just how influential Lanvin was at the time and it is interesting to discover just what a massive body of work she has left behind. The history is fascinating and accompanied by contemporaneous illustrations and photographs, alongside detailed photographs of the clothes and information about the people who commissioned the garments. The text is intelligently written and clearly illustrates the development of Lanvin's design house up to the present day though I must confess to being more inspired by the historical designs. I can recommend this to anyone with an interest in fashion, textiles or even social history.

This is sumptuous book! The photos are all beautiful quality and include pictures of complete garments and close ups of details. The commentary is also excellent and much more detailed than many fashion books. If you are interested in fashion design or dressmaking then this is a wonderull book-highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover
Gorgeous book from a designer who is not quite as well known as her contemporary Coco Chanel, yet her work is just as good. Now under the direction of Alber Elbaz, this book covers Jeanne Lanvin's early years & family life through to modern day and the revival of the brand since Elbaz took reign. An interesting read as well an abundance of lovely pictures, although you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, in this case the gorgeous cover is only the start of a great coffee table book!

Nice big book with clear big pictures. There is alot of writing, and history, and I prefer my books on fashion to be picture books so that is why only 3 stars. There are also nice drawings.
