Lantelme and Lanvin

Genevieve Lantelme was a fashion icon of belle epoque. In fashion magazines there’s many photos of her wearing Paquin dresses and Marie-Louise hats . The fashion house of Paquin was indeed very popular, but it seems Lantelme liked also other designers. She appreciated the work of Madeleine Vionnet, and this photo of 1910 shows her in a dress by Jeanne Lanvin.
