Well, if you made it to one of three Lanvin Petite pop-up shops in Paris, Monaco and New York, that is. The last event was held last week at The Pierre and had mommies gushing over $1,570 pink taffetta trenches, $1,105 red sun dresses and "reasonably priced" $645 shrug all not for themselves but for their children. In most cases, anyway.

"I'm thinking of trying to squeeze myself into the size 10," one adult told WWD of a black, tiered ruffle skirt.

All the materials used were the same as those used in the main Lanvin collection, so it's not too surprising the price tags reflected a similar likeness. There was champagne for the grown ups and a life size gingerbread house for the children, as well as a balloon artist and a musician playing The Hills Are Alive on a baby grand piano.

I suppose these are just the trappings of life for the super rich and their children, and an induction into what shopping will be like as an adult for the daughters. While it can be hard to imagine lavishing Lanvin on a 6 year old, I do really want to know if Suri has any of the pieces.
