Lanvin’s Limited Edition 120th Anniversary Totes

Happy Birthday Lanvin

“It’s Lanvin’s 120th Birthday and for the monumental occasion, Alber Elbaz is paying tribute to Jeanne Lanvin with a special edition birthday collection. This year’s special anniversary designs are an ode to mothers and daughters in honour of the luxury brand’s founder, Jeanne Lanvin. “

Season after season, designer Alber Elbaz of Lanvin comes up with cute, colourful and whimsical sketch-styled totes with caricature- and cartoon-esque girls, and for Lanvin’s commemorative 120th Anniversary totes, Elbaz continues this tradition. Apart from the “mother and daughter theme” as stated in Lanvin’s press release above, “love” also seems to be yet another apparent theme for these Limited Edition canvas totes with knotted grosgrain ribbon handles. Totes are priced at £444.79 each, via Net-a-Porter. I personally love these totes, because they’re so ME, but although they’re Limited and Anniversary collections, imho, it’s a little pricey for a canvas tote, don’t you think?
