Product Pick: Lanvin “BEYOND” Bags
It’s been a while since we last felt our hearts beating this fast. But, the new collection of wrist candies from Lanvin has just made us fall in love. The latest collection offers new range of BEYOND bags that comes in three models: a medium sized zip fastened daytime bag, a cocktail bag with a flap for the evening and a clutch for night time.
There is the BEYOND “Le Jour” has an adjustable leather strap and double compartments, cut from matt charcoal grey, aubergine and shell grained calfskin. The golden zip on the front highlights a Lanvin Paris logo in embossed gold. BEYOND “Le Soir” is a case of stiff black, red or blue leather with double compartments and an Art Deco jewel clasp that replaces the golden zip. And our favourite among the lot (image above) is BEYOND “La Nuit” that is a rigid Art Deco minaudière sculpted from dark or brilliant blue leathers. The night bird is decorated with a dark or gold coloured cabochon clasp, and comes in two sumptuous versions, gold lacquered wood and sparkling metal.
This collection is indeed a true contemporary reinterpretation of an evening bag created by Jeanne Lanvin in the fifties, it offers a delicate contrast between round shapes and “Art Deco” geometric jewels.
