Jeanne Lanvin was a visionary. Not only did the French fashion visionary and imaginative businesswoman from a poor background create the first designer fashion line for children - this was colorful and full of lightness, at a time when children were still dressed like adults - the first tailored men's collection, and the first unisex eau de toilette, but she also founded the world's longest-running fashion company. This featured women's, children's, and men's clothes, accessories, fragrances, furnishing textiles and decorative objects, and even its own paint factory. He was self-taught. Lanvin began as a hat maker with her own boutique and rose to become one of the best fashion designers of the twentieth century via her creative energy and innovation. She designed art deco costumes for stage and film, as well as the iconic perfume Arpège and a particular Lanvin blue based on the colour Fra Angelico blue. This lavishly illustrated coffee table book honors the incredible life and work of this extraordinary designer.
