I love indulging in an entertaining and enlightening book, and this Assouline collectible hardcover just so happens to be both (and so much more). Lanvin details the evolution of the high fashion brand, and it's namesake founder, Jeanne Lanvin.
Lanvin's got an incredible story, from her exciting personal life to her illustrious career as not just a couturier, but also as an interior designer and fragrance creator.
Lanvin by Elisabeth Barille is filled with illustrations and photography, and whether you're interested in clothing construction, costume design, or fashion history, this is a book you'll love looking through.
Bonus? Completely affordable, this hardcover book is a great gift idea for any stylish woman on your gift list this holiday season.
