Carry your perfume bottle in Lanvin’s Arpege evening bag (or anything that fits in it)
Hot off the Lanvin runway and into the closets of presumably every other fashion follower is the Parisian maison’s Arpege evening clutch. Designed in tribute to Lanvin’s 1927 fragrance of the same name, the velvet-lined case hugs the iconic shapes of the black ball bottle designed by Armand Albert Rateau.
Worked in shiny, hand-polished black enamel, a gold clasp trimmed with a yellow gold snake handle overhangs it. As an ultimate designer detail, the name of the house of Lanvin is discretely engraved on the clasp.
Jeanne Lanvin asked André Fraysse, a young man with a prodigious “nose” to compose an eternal fragrance to celebrate the 30th birthday of her adored musician daughter, telling him to “Think of Marie-Blanche”. It’s a musical fragrance with the top, middle and base notes bewitching the woman wearing it. An iconic reflection of its fashion, Arpège remains one of the most symbolic references of the Lanvin universe.
The ARPEGE evening bag will be available in LANVIN boutiques and on the e-store from February 2013.
