Some nice news: Lanvin got recognized as a "Living Heritage Company" ("Enterprise du Patrimoine Vivant") by the French government. And no, this is not for their rhinestones-clad sneakers; as Lanvin's news page says, it received the label "for its Made-to-Measure menswear department founded in 1926". Go to, then click one of rectangles (third from the left at the moment) to see the certificate. Andrey

The brand is very well known in Russia; there are several shops in Moscow and other cities. As sartys said (putting political comment aside), this is a Russian brand, with "italian" name invented by marketing. General consensus among Russian iGents is that the shoes are way overpriced for what they are. Glued, and most likely Chinese made -- though obviously, being an invented brand, they may change suppliers and introduce new lines from time to time. Andrey
Interesting... I wonder who is going to replace him as A&S' head cutter?I heard that Lesley Haines (ex head cutter at Douglas Hayward ("real" one, before Kilgour boys came in)) joined A&S as a cutter.Andrey
I bought their trousers then and now -- they seem to be the same as always. Andrey
