How to Spot…Lanvin Accessories

We’re adding a new little segment to HowFashionWorks called “How to Spot.” We thought about how easy it is  to eyeball a Louis Vuitton or Tory Burch piece because of their signature logos, but what about the brands that like to stay more discreet? In our inaugural “How to Spot” we point out a few ways to spot a Lanvin accessory.

Lanvin adds a whimsical touch to their handbags by weaving ribbon through the chain strap and finishing it with a bow and signature medallion keychain. Now that you know isn’t it easy to spot on these fashionable ladies?

And pointer number two….

Lanvin also uses grosgrain to set their shoes apart. Whether it’s the fine trim on a pump or flat, the laces on an oxford, or a decorative bow on the side, the French fashion house is know for their love of grosgrain details.
