Lanvin’s Lovable Little Dolls

Alber Elbaz recently took Lanvin back to its roots with Lanvin Petite, a kids collection full of ruffles, bows and pearls that is both an adorable off-shoot and a bit of an homage to founder Jeanne Lanvin whom always loved designing children’s clothes. The label announced earlier this week that when the collection hits boutiques this fall it will bring with it four limited edition fabric dolls complete with their own stylish Lanvin looks. While official prices for the collection have not yet been confirmed it is safe to say that even though they are children’s clothes they will not be cheap (they are still Lanvin after all) but anyone planning on purchasing a doll is in for some serious sticker shock as they will be retailing for $350 each!

Here at Promgirl News we love fashion that has a passion for promoting social change, which is why these Lanvin dolls are so special. The dolls represent a collaboration between Alber Elbaz and one of his favorite charitable organizations Dessine L’Espoir which helps HIV-positive women in Africa through employment and improvements in quality of life. Each doll is hand made by HIV-positive women in Dessine L’Espoir’s Swaziland production studio and a portion of the proceeds will go to helping the charity reach more women in Sub-Saharan Africa.

So while the price tag on these limited edition darlings is very much on the steep side these dolls are haute couture with a cause and you can’t put a price on that. The dolls will be available for sale at the beginning of November and can be found in all Lanvin boutiques and at any store that will be stocking the new Lanvin Petite line.
