The French maison LANVIN directed by Alber Elbaz has teamed up with charity Dessine L'Espoir to create four limited edition figurines in combination with the launch of its debut girls wear range, Lanvin Petite. The collaboration has been made in the spirit of founder Jeanne Lanvin, focusing on one of her passions–dolls. Each hand-embroidered by women from Swaziland diagnosed with HIV. Through their employment, the charity aims to enhance their quality of life so they are better fit to support their families. The chic little dolls are collectible pieces that each donates a percentage of the sales to Dessine L'Espoir. Available at Net-a-porter & Lanvin.com.
