LANVIN is launching its debut childrenswear line this November for spring/summer 2012. The collection will reflect the label's "super-luxury approach" and will comprise 25 pieces for girls aged between 4 to 10."It's a way to translate the universe of Lanvin ready-to-wear to the world of kids," Lanvin's executive vice president Thierry Andretta tellsWWD. "We really want to stay in the luxury world."
The offering is set to include dresses, T-shirts, coats, jumpers and accessories, and will be sold in 80 Lanvin stores across the world. Prices are yet to be confirmed, although it is thought the fabric used will be 10 ten more expensive than those typically used to create children's clothing.
Jeanne Lanvin, who founded the fashion house in 1909, is known for creating beautiful childrenswear and sketched clothes for a young demographic until 1935.
