F.O. Bailey Antiquarians - Falmouth, Maine
Jeanne Lanvin founded the fashion house we know as Lanvin in 1889. In 2001, Alber Elbaz took over as artistic director and the house has never been the same since. His designs grace the red carpet and hang in fashionista's closets everywhere. Along with the gorgeous gowns, he incorporates cute "Little Miss Lanvin" illustrations on some cheeky t-shirts and sweaters. Now they're stepping into 3-D. Lanvin has partnered up with the porcelain company Franz to make "Little Miss Lanvin" dolls. Each season there will be 6 new limited edition porcelain dolls, with just 800 released. Priced at $345 each, they each come packaged in Lanvin's signature pale blue box. The idea is homage to Jeanne Lanvin's part in the post-war Theatre de la Mode show, in which French couturiers showcased their designs through miniature dolls, due to the lack of fabric. Spring '08 and Spring '09 dolls are out now, and the newest collection will be out soon. Check www.franzcollection.com to find out where you can buy them!
