It goes without saying that a huge percentage of the global population is busy trying to find activities to pass the time while they’re being isolated at home. LANVIN’s creative director Bruno Sialelli shares heartwarming pictures of Babar—the famous fictional elephant that’s an icon of French children literature—and his stay at home activities, dubbed “The Babar Guide to Staying Home.”

As self-isolation becomes a reality for more and more, LANVIN’s creative director Bruno Sialelli shares a set of heartwarming pictures which shows Babar the Elephant and his activities at home. Dubbed “The Babar Guide To Staying Home,” this is part of the French fashion house’s Spring 2020 social media initiative aimed at spreading humor and warmth to people stuck at home.

Making his appearance all the way back in 1931, Babar the Elephant is a fictional character from the French children’s book “Histoire de Babar by Jean de Brunhoff. The character was invented by Brunhoff for his son, which is coincidentally the same reason why Jeanne Lanvin started her fashion house in 1889, which is to create dresses for her daughter Marguerite. This is exactly why Sialelli chose the cartoon character.

“The Babar Guide To Staying Home” opens with a heartwarming note that reads: “Time to stay at home & take care of each other. Love from France.” As for the rest, here are some of the things Babar has been doing at home for you to try, courtesy of LANVIN and Bruno Sialelli.
