What to buy the woman who has everything? A limited-edition doll courtesy of the Lanvin designer and all-round fashion darling, Alber Elbaz, might make her very happy indeed. For autumn, the small but perfectly formed house that is currently giving the big brands a run for their money has collaborated with the Taiwanese craftsman Franz, and is offering up small but perfectly formed hand-painted porcelain figurines wearing signature looks from the current collection and tiny stilettos. True to the current vogue for all things collectable, each doll is limited to a series of 800 and costs 250. A bargain, one might not unreasonably argue, given that a full-size Lanvin frock might cost 10 times that, and then there are the dry-cleaning bills to consider.
