Lanvin has landed in New York!

Finally! The extremely luxurious Paris-based fashion house has never had a boutique in the Big Apple until now! The new store is poised to open at the end of July at 815 Madison Avenue near 68th Street.

Looking at the photos of the flagship store, it looks very art deco. There are benches covered with black fox fur, dark gray Carrara marble floors and mannequins with red lips holding bird cages. Decadence to the max!

The store will occupy 3,550 square feet and the first three floors of a 6,875-square-foot, five-story town house. The two upper floors will become the company’s corporate headquarters in September.
I personally love the new store. It looks so comfy that I could stay there for hours and buy everything they have. So this is old 2009 news but I only just saw this article about Lanvin recently - did you know Michelle Obama was wearing a pair of $540 bucks Lanvin sneakers while volunteering at a food bank in Washington DC? Talk about inappropriate! I thought she's all about J. Crew and affordable clothing. Even so, love her style and her h, she always look so effortless. Nothing wrong with a pair of nice shoes once in a while!
