'Jeanne Lanvin' App by Paris Musées
Paris Musées and the Palais Galliera, in partnership with Maison Lanvin, have created a free application packed with illustrations to accompany the 'Jeanne Lanvin' exhibition. The app can be accessed from smartphones and tablets and is available in French and English. It gives visitors a more in-depth understanding by offering additional content that develops the themes explored in the exhibition and complements the pieces exhibited.

Users have access to audio and video content, texts and more than two hundred archive images from the Lanvin and Palais Galliera collections. The application presents drawings from Maison Lanvin, clothing and accessories, videos, photographs of the dresses, archive images, design registrations, invitation cards, posters, extracts from magazines and fabric samples to illustrate the themes and clothes and to draw links with other creations both within and outside the exhibition.

It also contains a biography of Jeanne Lanvin illustrated with archive documents, as well as access to content relating to the exhibition's 13 themes and the 18 featured iconic creations by Jeanne Lanvin. With its understated look and simple, user-friendly design, it is the ideal showcase for the images it presents, which can be viewed in full-screen mode.

The application is divided into three separate sections that can be accessed at any time:
. The PORTRAIT section contains the biography of Jeanne Lanvin, illustrated with archive documents, photographs of her apartment and pictures of her.
. The TOUR section is the core part of the application. It allows visitors to explore, either from a list or via the exhibition plan, the major themes that make Lanvin's style so unique – the colour blue, the hats, the childrenswear and clothes for young girls, the logo designed by Paul Iribe, the period dresses and wedding gowns, the medieval and exotic influences, the geometric designs, black and white, the 1925 show and, of course, the evening dresses and embroidery. Each of the themes looks in detail at one or two items of clothing, using archive documents and close-up photographs to reveal the different aspects and phases of design that go into creating a single piece.
. Finally, visitors can consult the INFO section for practical information about the museum and the exhibition, as well as the application credits. This tab also contains direct links to the Palais Galliera's Twitter and Facebook accounts.

The 'Jeanne Lanvin' app is part of a broader policy being implemented by Paris Musées to create a technological environment for visitors that responds to the modern-day challenges posed by information and cultural mediation.

This application is available free of charge from the APPLE STORE and PLAY STORE and can be downloaded in the museum foyer.
