Kids these days don't know how good they have it. There's an inundation of designers introducing the world of high fashion to the under-12 set (which could be a good or bad thing … we haven't decided yet). And right in the mix of it all is the beloved French line, Lanvin. Alber Elbaz's designs for Lanvin Petite exude girliness and maintain the same wit, grace, and meticulous detail as its femme line. Now we realize that major design usually entails major prices, and Lanvin Petite is no exception. But, personally, if you're going to splurge, these are the clothes to do it on.
