The Pencil Bag is inspired by the pencil box that brand founder Jeanne Lanvin has always worn. The limited edition version, made in black box leather, is smaller than the usual model. Each bag will be numbered and will have a double heart design on the left side.

A Lanvin spokesperson said the collaboration between Lanvin and Liang, on “one of the most important occasions of the year”, aims “to reinforce the legend of the oldest French fashion house and to strengthen the visibility of Lanvin handbags among the young target audience”.

As for Liang, he wanted to design a bag that could stand out for his followers with Lanvin, while paying homage to the brand’s founder.

“A lot of my fans have had a lot of bags before, so I want to give them something sophisticated, chic and understated,” he said.

“The pencil case symbolizes the creative spirit of Jeanne Lanvin, who also made me think of my own pencil case because I also like to write and draw with my hands. So when I heard about this reference, I was particularly touched. I hope this special pencil bag can accompany my fans at all times and record the beauty of their lives,” he added.
