Rare Treasure Uncovered: The Lanvin You've Never Seen Before

To say that videos of Lanvin founder Jeanne Lanvin are rare would be an understatement, but a recently discovered film offers a glimpse of the legendary designer at work.

Lanvin is seen making last-minute preparations before presenting a collection. The relative calm of her office, where she contemplates the intricate beadwork and floral embroidery on her dresses, is spliced with footage of seamstresses working feverishly in the Lanvin atelier at 22 Faubourg Saint Honoré.

No one's voice is heard in the one-minute clip, but toward the end it spotlights a quote from Lanvin, who said she tried "every season to enter the imponderable vogue in the air." A look at her doing just that in the video below.
