Lanvin's fourth stateside boutique, a 4,520-square-foot space that recently opened on Rodeo Drive, adds a bit of old Hollywood glamour to the house's signature style: Mixed in with antique chandeliers, parquet flooring, animal-print rugs and brushed steel panels are Art Deco accents and black-and-white photos of Lanvin models from the 1930s. The first floor is home to women's and men's accessories, while the ready-to-wear collections—in addition to the Blanche, 22 Faubourg, Denim and Swim capsules—are on the lower level, along with made-to-measure and tailoring services. A corridor of mirrors leads to a private fitting area. It wouldn't be Lanvin without a dose of whimsy, so in addition to more traditional gift items like umbrellas, stationery and perfume, the boutique offers playing cards, music boxes and hand-painted porcelain dolls. At 260 N. Rodeo Dr., Beverly Hills; 310-402-0580; lanvin.com.
