(a, b) House of Lanvin | Evening suit | French | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
"White tie" formal evening suit (tuxedo), by E. Larue for Jeanne Lanvin (manufactured by Cluett, Peabody & Company, Inc.), French, c. 1927. This fine example of a complete men's evening wear ensemble is exemplary of the tailor's art with a superior cut which holds its shape readily. The men's wear department of the house of Lanvin was opened in 1926 and run by Jeanne Lanvin's nephew, Maurice Lanvin.
