LANVIN MODERNIST FOR PURISTS
Everyone seems to be mad for the contemporary Lanvinjewelry. We agree, it's great to see faux gems done so beautifully in contemporary fashion. In the 60s, Lanvin produced many wonderful space age and modernist pieces of jewelry and we are particularly impressed with the design represented on this post today. A mix of gold cord with three cream Bakelite sculptural nuggets.
It's a statement piece and that's what we love about faux-bling.
