  In the sumptuous apartment of the Parisian seamstress 22, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré... The mythical address of the House of Lanvin, symbol of femininity and elegance, is today a prestigious brand recognized throughout the world. Jeanne Lanvin, a visionary designer, was also an exceptional woman. Born in 1867, she decided as a child to turn her destiny towards the fashion world. As a milliner at the age of 16, she developed a passion for hats. She quickly opened her own workshop and by 1925 she was already employing more than 800 seamstresses. This visit offers you the opportunity to discover a lesser-known facet of the seamstress: her taste for interior decoration. In 1920, Jeanne Lanvin bought the former mansion of the marquise Arconati-Visconti, 16 rue Barbet-de-Jouy. She had a reception wing built, the rooms of which were fitted out by Armand-Albert Rateau. In the 1920s, this decorator developed a very particular style that stemmed from his interest in antique art and the use of an original bestiary. The three rooms of Jeanne Lanvin's private apartment, also decorated by Rateau in 1924-1925, illustrate a very personal luxury with its furniture in bronze with an antique patina, oak or gilded wood. The visit will continue with the discovery of the "art deco" collections at the MAD (Museum of Decorative Arts).
