The Lanvin Petite collection offers a cheerful array of luxury choices for the sweetest little girl’s boudoir. Reminiscent of the women’s collection, Alber Elbaz has designed the children’s line to reflect some of the many nuanced design details that he is best-known for, including exposed zippers and raw seams. Consisting of dresses, skirts, tops, a trench coat and beautiful accessories, the Lanvin Petite collection is made from plush materials, such as washed organza, pleated tulle, taffeta, satin ribbon and grosgrain, beads and strass. Additional pieces to the collection include dolls, necklaces and ballerina flats that come in silk or metallic calfskin with a tulle pompom.

There are four versions of the figurines; each wearing exact replica dresses from the Lanvin Petite collection. Looking fabulous in their miniature Lanvin dresses, faux pearl earrings, tulle-wrapped necklaces, sequined eye shadow and stitched manicures, the peacock figurine, along with two additional styles, will be available at Odile for $400.

Cozzini diligently scouts the world for international treasures and heirloom pieces that will be cherished for generations to come. In addition to the newly added Lanvin Petite collection, other featured lines include Le Nouveau Nè, Stella Cove, La Stupenderia, Frilo, 120% Lino and Baroni.
