Alber Elbaz’s ‘Miss Lanvin’ Dolls
Designer: Alber Elbaz
Item: Miss Lanvin Dolls
Alber Elbaz, who recently adorned his Faubourg Saint-Honoré store windows with miniature mannequins clad in his ready-to-wear designs, is banking on that premise with the introduction of a series of miniature Miss Lanvin dolls created with Taiwanese craftsman Franz, famous worldwide for his collections of decorative objects in Chinese porcelain.
Packaged in Lanvin’s signature blue boxes and individually numbered and signed in a production run of 800, each of the hand-painted figurines—which boast exaggeratedly long legs—are featured clothed in Elbaz’s most signature looks, including his slick black trench and voluminous dresses, accessorized with netted pearl necklaces and sky-high stilettos. Six new dolls will be produced each season between Elbaz and Franz. The collectibles will be priced at $345 each and be sold at Lanvin boutiques and the label’s top retailers
