Lanvin has named Bouchra Jarrar as it’s new artistic director.
Jarrar, known for her impeccable tailoring, has had 20 years of experience in the fashion industry having worked for Jean Paul Gaultier, Balenciaga, and Christian Lacroix. She will replace former creative director Alber Elbaz, who famously fell out with the French fashion house after working for the company for 14 years.
“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,” Jarrar said in an official statement. “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.”
