Lanvin is a French label, based in Paris and established in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin. It is a luxurious brand, which combines traditional French style with a modern twist. Alber Elbaz has been the artistic director for the label since 2001 and has transformed the line with the use of his talent, raw energy and creativity.
Many designers have collaborated with H&M in the past, such as Stella McCartney, Karl Lagerfeld and Sonia Rykiel, all of which have been extremely successful.
