Lanvin Perfumes

This 1949 advertisement for Lanvin perfumes was illustrated by Guillaume Gillet. In it posters are depicted with the names of several of the house’s well-known fragrances written on them: Scandal, Arpege, Rumeur, My Sin, Prétexte. The seductive-sounding names hint at an illicit affair, whilst the lush use of colour throughout this poster indicate the vibrancy of the perfumes it advertises. Gillet created a series of similar advertising images for Lanvin all around the same time, often with a flower seller included—shown here at the bottom left.

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.
