Meaning and History logo

Lanvin logo


The history of the fashion house started in 1889 when Jeanne Lanvin opened her boutique in Paris. In 1897, her daughter Marguerite was born, who became a great source of inspiration for the woman. When in 1907 the two were invited to a costume ball, the mother created matching outfits for them both – and they were photographed wearing these clothes. Eventually, in 1923, Jeanne decided to use this photo as an inspiration for the Lanvin logo. Today, the house sells a variety of fashion items, from shoes and bags to clothing and perfumes.
