..but, to celebrate Lanvin's 120th birthday last year, Alber Elbaz (he of joyous round glasses and bow ties) has designed two stamps for the French postal service.
The stamps, featuring Alber's whimsical illustrations, don't come out until later this month so there is still a chance to get your hands on them.
Plus if you can't book yourself a flight to Paris and don't fancy risking the Eurostar this month then fortunately they will be sold online at LaPoste. There will also be special stamp packs for all those serious stamp collectors out there.

Who said stamp collecting was geeky!?
Also as part of the birthday celebrations, Lanvin released stationery sets such as pencils and notebooks before Christmas as well as porcelain figures which I believe are still available in Harrods.
The pencils are still available on the Colette website here
