UBER aute alert! Lanvin (the corners of our mouth are already on the up) are launching a range of childrenswear (cue mini coo-ing noises) - and to build the hype Alber Elbaz himself has declared that there will be a global-wide online recipe contest for mothers and daughters to find the finest chocolate cake in the land! (full blown squeals!) Just like Cinderella but with patisserie instead of feet.
The range, which will be called Lanvin Petite was launched in the summer and is already available online, but it’s arrival in boutiques is the occasion that’ll be toasted at a luxurious tea party thrown at the Paris Ritz – hence the cake competition. Fans of Lanvin and cooking – who have a little daughter (although we’re sure you could ‘borrow’ a niece or mini cousin if you needed to) need to send recipes to the brand to lanvin.com PLUS a photo of the proposed sweet treatlet.
The winner will then be chosen by the executive chef at the Ritz Escoffier cooking school, which will then whip up the cakes to serve at the tea party at the famous Place Vendôme hotel on December 4th (so you haven’t got long, peeps!)
