Just in time for Art Basel, Lanvin has arrived. The French fashion house opened its doors December 4 in the ultra luxe Bal Harbour Shops, the Miami fashion capital that has fostered quite a bit of boutique-launching activity in the past few months. The event, which kicked off with a mix of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, marked the opening of its first free-standing U.S. store.
The mix of esteemed guests included Lanvin Executive VP Thierry Andretta, Channel 7 News Anchor Belkys Nerey, Rebecca Kleinman, Alex Koo and Courtney and Lowell Pettit of Pettit Art Partners. Fashion forward clothing, jewelry, shoes and bags in warm fall shades of yellow, gold, red, orange, gray and beige awaited beyond an animal-inspired front window display.
Lanvin currently operates 19 company-owned boutiques and 21 franchises, in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.
