Object History: Lanvin Quattrocentro Necklace
11.05.16

It’s fun, bright and simply wants to have a good time. Lanvin’s Quattrocentro necklace is a special find that has encouraged Love and Object to fall in love with vibrant colour once more.

The piece, circa 1977-78, was created in limited edition for fashion show collections, and sports the defining shade, Quattrocento Blue. Couturier founder Jeanne Lanvin adopted and named the hue as her signature colour after seeing the Fra Angelico Frescoes in Florence during the 1920s. From here, Quattrocento Blue has continued to thread through Lanvin’s design sensibilities, becoming a celebrated part of House Design Codes. Cream and gold accents, along with a swinging black tassel, compliment the rich pigment and echo Lanvin’s art deco sensibilities, while also feeling relevant to today’s modern setting.

Jeanne opened a Lanvin dye factory especially to produce the pigment for use in fashion collections and as one of the first to explore jewellery as equal partner to fashion creations, we will always be in adoration of the pioneering designer.
Giving rich colour and seventies decadence their proper dues, the Lanvin necklace is the piece we just want to party in.
