Lanvin Unites With Ballroom House Of Xclusive-Lanvin For Ongoing Partnership

To understand ballroom culture is to know the inner workings of the house. In the ball community, "houses" refer to the collective group of individual performers. They are typically presided over by a central figure, called mother, and named after high-fashion brands or pioneering figures. But very rarely do said fashion labels collaborate with the houses they've inspired—until now.

Lanvin, the storied French fashion house known for its elegant, glamorous Parisian aesthetic, is joining forces with The House of Xclusive-Lanvin, the ballroom house named after the fashion label. Today, September 11, the label unveiled its first project under the ongoing partnership, a short filmed titled La Mère et L'enfant (which translates to Mother and Child) featuring actress and activist Indya Moore and members of The House of Xclusive-Lanvin.

In the clip, Moore plays mother to a curious child who wants nothing more than to own the Lanvin bag she saw in the fashion house's window. "Oh, honey. An exclusive bag like this is only for a mother. One day you will be a mother—if you want to," Moore says to the child. And the child grows up to be just that. The next scene takes us inside The House of Xclusive-Lanvin, where members serve face, attitude, and lewks, from using a Lanvin bag as a hat to voguing in the house's chicest pieces.
