Five months after Alber Elbaz’s departure, Lanvin has named a new artistic director. 45-years-old, Bouchra Jarrar, has been a member of the haute couture house since 2013. With 20 years of experience, Jarrar has worked at Jean Paul-Gaultier, Balenciaga and Christian Lacroix. Known for her tailoring, Jarrar seems like a worthy successor.
Jarrar said in an official statement, “It is a huge honor to continue promoting the Lanvin style, with designs created in the company’s ‘ateliers’ by teams who possess extraordinary expertise. Joining Lanvin meets a desire to expend my creation to wider fields of expression. It is my intention to bring to Lanvin the harmony and consistency of a fashion designed for women, a fashion of our time.”
