Lanvin and Harvey Nichols are delighted to invite you to celebrate the launch of the new fragrance, Avant Garde, at a series of exciting events. Join Paris’s oldest couture house as it launches its latest menswear fragrance in-store at Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, London, on Thursday 17 November from 6.30pm.

The event will feature a menswear fashion presentation hosted by the Lanvin fashion team and award-winning ShortList style director Adrian Clark, with fragrance experts on hand to introduce Avant Garde.

The Lanvin team will also be celebrating the launch at selected Harvey Nichols regional stores with each evening promising to be appropriately memorable.

Avant Garde is one of the most anticipated fragrances of the year, appealing to the modern man. Shyamala Maisondieu, the nose behind the scent said, “I wanted to create an olfactory interpretation of Lanvin’s casual elegance with a streamlined, masculine and unique composition. Woody scents fascinate me — chic and comfortable, their warm, sensual strength inspires.”
