When I first spotted the Lanvin Crystal Eagle Applique Tee, I thought the bird on the front was a phoenix. The phoenix is a bird most commonly known for its appearance in Greek mythology. It is that beautiful bird that builds a nest and ignites itself into flames. From the ashes emerges a new phoenix, implying that this creature is immortal. Pretty cool! But sadly, the description for this top says that the bird is an eagle. And upon closer inspection, apparently it is an eagle wearing a crown. This isn’t the first Lanvin piece featuring an eagle motif though. I guess for some reason, this piece just looked a little different. Maybe it is the trailing tail feathers.

The Lanvin Honeymoon suitcase just popped up over at net-a-porter and I can not stop thinking about it.
Writing it down, this is on my wish list. It’s almost that time of the year when the travel season kicks off and I can’t think of anything more awesome than the all in one Lanvin case.
The Lanvin Honeymoon Set features a classic simple white glazed canvas suitcase, filled with a collection of Lanvin signature multicolored printed accessories. The case itself is designed with rounded corners, silver-tone hardware, clip fastenings, a wooden handle, fuchsia printed lining with designer tag on inner lid and grosgrain self-tie inner straps. Then when popped open reveals a treasure of matching accessories. In the case you’ll find a matching printed cotton tote bag that has grosgrain handles, is fully lined and has inner zip and patch pockets, a small patterned drawstring bag, pompom-embellished raffia flip flops that come in one size and a large printed pareo.
I’m also thinking about past summer.. dump out the summer wear and this would be the perfect little beauty case for travel.
The Lanvin Suitcase Honeymoon Set is available at Net-a-Porter for $740
My favorite pair of flats that I currently own are a pair of black patent Lanvin Ballerina’s with pearl clasp detailing. They are fabulous. I can totally see why so many people love Lanvin, their flats are designed so well and are known for their comfort.
The Ballerina Flats feature a comfortable concealed heel (measures approximately 20mm/ 1 inch) and patent crinkled leather. The color of these Lanvin Patent Ballerina Flats are pretty amazing, a perfect refreshing color to hop into spring. Although soon as the summer season comes to an end, it will be time to pack these beauties up.
Don’t worry, if you’re not feeling the bright acid yellow, there are a couple other spring colors that were just introduced, including a beige nude (year round gorgeous), turquoise, gold, and my favorite bubble gum pink.

Adorable! These would make the perfect finishing touch to any spring outfit. They’re pretty self explanatory, dangling strawberry earrings by the couture jewelry line of Lanvin. Red and green enameled fruit earrings feature leaf and all, with Swarovski crystal embellishments as its seeds. Just when I’m considering adding these to my ever-growing jewelry collection, they’re clip-on’s for non-pierced ears (which I just can’t do), and their price tag of $895 is much less convincing. If you’re liking these then head on over to NET-A-PORTER and check them out, now.
Just by spotting this piece how I wish it was my birthday! It’s the perfect tote for such an occasion; meet the Birthday Canvas by Lanvin.
This cream canvas tote bag was specially made to mark the 120th year anniversary of the couture fashion house of Lanvin.
Illustrations seen on this tote includes a fashionista popping out of a tier cake and giant letters read “LOVE” right across.
Pretty ribbon handles and stunning scarlet lining, this canvas tote retails for $800 through: NET-A-PORTER
One of my favorite costume jewelry finds goes to Lanvin for its Glass Pearl and Heart Necklace. This lovely and exquisite piece features an arrangement of knotted pearls, lacey velvet, and many gem encrusted details. The chunky neckwear drops and holds a giant heart detail at its center, which displays a gold crystal arrow through it. Such a gorgeous piece, unfortunately, I wouldn�t have anywhere to use this to. This oversized Lanvin neckwear carries a hefty price tag of $2,525, but is definitely a treasure for years to come.
