In support of the charity Designing Hope, Lanvin will offer clients four limited edition soft figurines to mark the launch of its girls wear collection. Alber Elbaz asked Dessine L’espoir to create four limited edition soft figurines, each of which are delightfully pretty and dressed in miniature LANVIN Petite outfits.
Each of the figurines were hand-embroidered and stitched by a group of women diagnosed with HIV positive, supported by the association, Dessine L’espoir in Swaziland. Employed by the association, the project will enable these women to enhance their quality of life and better meet the needs of their families.
Lanvin and Dessine L’espoir have worked together on various different projects, including the Gala Dinner, organised last March under the glass ceiling of the Grand Palais to raise funds for the charity and its work in supporting persons living with HIV in southern Africa. Lanvin decorated the tables for the occasion with sketches by Alber Elbaz. These darling soft figurines are an ideal gift or collector's item, will be on sale as of November in all LANVIN boutiques and retail outlets that carry the Lanvin Petite line.
