From the fashion house’s inception, Lanvin has been inspired by family, beginning with designer Jeanne Lanvin’s deeply felt affection for her daughter, who was her mother’s primary muse since infancy. In a nod to the the historic bond between Jeanne and Marguerite Marie Blanche, forever immortalized in the brand’s iconic logo illustrated from a 1907 photograph of the pair, Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz joined forces with photographer Tim Walker to shoot a new spring campaign featuring experienced and recognizable models alongside their own daughters.

Included in the women’s campaign are model-daughter pairings Pat and Anna Cleveland, Violetta Sanchez and Luz Godin, and Kristen and Billie Rose Owen, each outfitted in a matching and complementary ensemble.

In paying tribute both to the history of the fashion house and the shared past of each individual family, Lanvin’s spring campaign is composed of moments that are entirely relatable. With the cable release making a special appearance in several of the images, Walker’s photos break through the stiffness that sometimes permeates fashion imagery to reveal something refreshingly genuine.

Images from the spring campaign will grace fashion magazine pages beginning this March, and Lanvin will release an accompanying video next month.

EXHIBITION: Martina Lindqvist: Neighbours / Murmurs, The Photographers’ Gallery, 16–18 Ramillies Street, 31 October – 14 January
Celebrated Finnish photographer Martina Lindqvist presents Neighbours and Murmurs, two recent series exploring the theme of memory, family, and loss. Neighbors documents a scarcely inhabited region in Finland, digitally expanding the space that surrounds its houses to underscore its remoteness. Murmurs takes an indirect look at the faltering memory of the artist’s grandmother, who struggles with Alzheimer’s. By constructing still lifes of withering flowers set in cardboard vases, Lindqvist explores the ways in which the significance we place on “keeping up appearances” diminishes as we negotiate our final years of life.

When collectors Michel Hurst and Robert Swop discovered the many photo albums of Casa Susanna at a 26th Street flea market in New York City, they knew that they had unearthed a forgotten treasure. In the gender-conforming culture that defined much of mid-century American life, Casa Susanna was a refuge for the heterosexual male cross-dressers who gathered on weekends from the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s as their female alter egos.
