Lanvin Perfumes

This ad from 1946 was illustrated by Denyse de Bravura for Lanvin perfumes. As well as a commercial artist, Bravura was a portrait painter, a ballet designer and a fashion designer. He came into contact with many of the big personalities of his time, including Coco Chanel, Jean Hugo and Marcel Khill. Much evidenced in this image is Bravura’s love of fantasy and his colourful imagination. The luscious flowers depicted here bear the tags of classic Lanvin fragrances: Scandal, My Sin, Prétexte, Rumeur and Arpege.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
