Amidst financial troubles, Lanvin has found a new owner. Today, it was announced that Shanghai-based Fosun International has acquired a majority stake in France’s oldest fashion house.

Fosun, the owner of resort chain Club Med, hasn’t offered any specifics regarding the deal, but it did disclose that current shareholders will maintain a minority stake in the company.
