Bouchara Jarrar has a tough job. She needs to move Lanvin forward while paying homage to it's substantial history. So when she moved the location of the spring summer collection to the ornate Hotel de Ville we knew that she knew the gravity of her role as the creative machine behind one of France's most iconic fashion houses. Inside the majestic de Ville, Lanvin unleashed a collection worthy of its history and laid a foundation for its future. From feather trimmed jackets to uber-sexy white suits to the signature blue, it all came together as a cohesive, strong collection that suggested Lanvin's appeal evolving to a bigger consumer base.
