Lanvin has announced that Bouchra Jarrar has been appointed artistic director of women’s collections. She will assume the role on Monday and will reveal her debut collection for the house for spring/summer 2017. Jarrar replaces Alber Elbaz, former artistic director of Lanvin, who was ousted from the company in October after a 14-year tenure. While Elbaz oversaw both collections for the house, Jarrar will solely oversee womenwear collection.
Her talent, her high standards and her mastery of cuts and fabrics will bring a breath of freshness and modernity into the house, while respecting its soul as the oldest Paris couture house, a symbol of French elegance. – Lanvin chief executive officer Michèle Huiban
It is a huge honour to continue promoting the Lanvin style, with designs created in the company’s ateliers by teams who possess extraordinary expertise. Joining Lanvin meets a desire to expend my creation to wider fields of expression. It is my intention to bring to Lanvin the harmony and consistency of a fashion designed for women, a fashion of our time. – Bouchra Jarrar
