I went to an exhibit of clothing by the famous Lanvin at the Galleria Museum the other day. Since I exited at the Georges V exit on line one I made my usual quick stop at the George V Hotel for a look at the flowers.
Jeanne Lanvin started her career when women wanted copies of the clothing she was making for her daughter. The clothing was beautifully presented mostly in trays and reflected into mirrors. This one wasn’t and I liked seeing it in the painting of a lady who once wore it. Lanvin was also famous for her perfumes, My Sin and Arpege. I think my mother had a bottle of Arpege once.
