Jeanne Lanvin Life

Jeanne-Marie Lanvin (French: [an mav] [a lv]; 1 January 1867–6 July 1946) was a French haute couture fashion designer. She founded Lanvin Parfums, as well as the Lanvin fashion store and the beauty and perfume business Lanvin Parfums.

Early life

Jeanne Lanvin was born in Paris on January 1st, 1867, the eldest of 11 children of Constantin Lanvin and Sophie Deshayes. She began as an apprentice milliner at Madame Félix in Paris at the age of 16, and worked with Suzanne Talbot and Caroline Montagne Roux before becoming a milliner on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in 1889.


Jeanne Lanvin Career


Lanvin joined the Syndicat de la Couture (fr), indicating her formal position as a couturière in 1909. Lanvin's clothing began to attract the attention of a number of wealthy people who wanted to purchase copies for their own children. Lanvin was soon producing dresses for their mothers, and some of Europe's most well-known brands were included in her new boutique on the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Paris.

A dye factory in Nanterre, which dates back to 1923, was included in the Lanvin empire. Lanvin opened shops dedicated to home décor, menswear, furs, and lingerie in the 1920s.

However, her most notable expansion was Lanvin Parfums SA in 1924 and the introduction of her signature fragrance, Arpège, in 1927, inspired by the sounds of her daughter Marguerite playing her scales on the piano. mining village Arpeppe is located in France.)

Lanvin collaborated with respected French designer Armand-Albert Rateau in 1922, reimagining her apartment, her homes, and her companies. (In 1985, the living room, boudoir, and bathroom of the apartment were reassembled in the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris.) Rateau created some of the 1920-22 furniture in bronze for this residence. Rateau joined Lanvin as a Lanvin-Sport manager, as well as designing the Lanvin spherical La Boule perfume flacon for Arpège (originally produced by the Manufacture Nationale de Sèvres). Arpège perfume bottles are imprinted with Paul Iribe's gold image (rendered in 197) of Lanvin and her daughter Marguerite. In the main store on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Rateau also managed Lanvin-Décoration (an interior-design department, established 1920) in the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
