In a continued celebration of its 120th anniversary, French fashion house Lanvin has aligned itself with the La Poste (the French Postal Service) to create a limited edition series of stamps. The Alber Elbaz-designed effort will go on sale early into 2010 with additional products including three ceramic hearts for sending to loved ones and other Lanvin anniversary items such as stationary. Also look for an online presence to launch in the near future on La Poste’s website.
LANVIN STAMP-EDE: As part of continued celebrations for Lanvin’s 120th anniversary, Alber Elbaz has designed two stamps for the French postal service, La Poste, illustrated with his iconic playful doodles. They will go on sale early next year. Also on offer will be three limited edition ceramic hearts for sending to loved ones in the post. Lanvin’s historic mother-and-daughter logo will feature on packs geared to stamp collectors. Meanwhile, other Lanvin anniversary goodies — including pencils, paper presses and notebooks — will be on offer later this month at the post office based on Rue des Mathurins in Paris. An online Lanvin store also will be created for the occasion on the post office’s Web site.
