the house of lanvin

I think I originally wanted this book simply because of the cover image - but the interior is just as gorgeous and mouth-watering. I love all the historical photos, details of the gowns and fashion illustrations that make up this retrospective of the parisian couture house, Lanvin. But I think the best part is the inclusion of the inspiration behind Jeanne Lanvin's work (like the above Sargent painting!).
