Should the Customer chooses to use a carrier different from that proposed by www.lanvin.com, the Customer will have to pay the return costs directly to the carrier they have chosen.
Returns may be shipped by the UPS carrier specified by Vendor.
For any return the customer must either create a return in "My Account" section if registered as a user, or must contact the customer care which will send them a return voucher, a pre-printed label to affix to the package.
This process will allow the Vendor to pay the return costs to the carrier directly and to check at any time where the package is located. The Customer will contact UPS to arrange the return of the Products. If for the return of the Products, the Customer decides to use a different carrier from that indicated by www.lanvin.com, they will personally pay the return costs and they will bear responsibility for loss or damage of the Products during the carriage.
The Customer will be contacted again if their return cannot be accepted as it does not comply with the conditions stated in paragraphs a) and e) of Section 10.1 above. The Customer may choose to have the Products they have purchased sent back to them. In the absence of such a request, the Vendor may keep the Products, in addition to the amounts already paid for their purchase.
10.2 Conformity checks
The Products must be returned in their original condition, unused, in perfect condition, with all protective packaging, labels, and adhesives affixed to them (if applicable), including all accessories and documents. The Vendor reserves the right to refuse any Product return that shows signs of wear, or that has been used or modified compared to its original condition in any way, or alternatively, reduce the refund amount or the value of the exchange, as the case may be.
For example, the Vendor may choose to grant a partial refund in the following cases:
- the product(s) have been used, worn, damaged, or washed;
- the single-use sealed identification label is not attached to the product(s) or has not been returned. The Customer should note that the identification label is an integral part of each product; and/or
- the Customer has not returned a packaging item that is an integral part of a product (e.g. the dust bag or storage bag).
The Customer will be informed if the Vendor decides to reduce the amount of the refund for this reason. In this case, the Customer may (rather than obtain a partial refund from the Vendor) choose to have the Products returned to them at their expense. If the Customer refuses this delivery, the Vendor reserves the right to keep the Products and the amount specified as a partial refund due to the loss of value of the returned Products.
10.3 Refund time limits and terms:
After receipt and verification by the Vendor of compliance with the requirements, the Customer will receive an email confirming acceptance of the return of the Products. Regardless of the payment method used (credit/debit card), the refund is activated by the Vendor as soon as possible, no later than fourteen (14) days after the Products are delivered to the UPS carrier or, in the case of another carrier, on receipt by the Vendor of proof of shipment of the Products, provided that exercising this right meets all the conditions set out in the General Conditions of Sale.
The actual time needed to re-credit or refund amounts depends on the payment method used:
- credit/debit card purchase: the refund time depends on the bank that issued the credit/debit card. The Vendor recalls that the date of the new credit (which is deemed to be the refund) will be the same as the debit date, as a result of which the Customer will not suffer any bank interest penalty;
- purchase via PayPal: the refund on the customer's PayPal account will be visible immediately. The actual refund on the credit card of the Customer’s PayPal account depends on the credit card company;
If it is a gift, a refund of the amount will be made to the person who made the payment.
10.4 Product labels:
All Products offered for sale by the Vendor have a label fastened by a single-use seal. The Customer is requested to try the Products without removing the label or the corresponding seal since returned Products will not be accepted if they are missing.
ARTICLE 11 – STATUTORY WARRANTIES
The Vendor shall be liable for non-conformity of the Products with the contract under the conditions of Article L. 217-4 and following of the French Consumer Code and for hidden defects of the Product sold under the conditions laid down in Articles 1641 and following of the French Civil Code.

If the repair or replacement of the Product is unavailable, the Customer may be refunded the price paid and return the Product or keep the Product and be refunded a portion of the price, unless the non-conformity is minor.
In the event of a conformity defect of a delivered Product, the Customer may return the Product with the conformity defect to the Vendor, in its original condition, which must have the original labels and the original packaging and the delivery note, specifying in advance to the Vendor the reasons for the return by contacting the Customer Service.

11.2 Statutory warranty against hidden defects
JEANNE LANVIN will provide the Customer with a Product free of hidden defects that would make it unfit for the use for which it is intended, or that would diminish its use to such extent that the Customer would not have acquired it, or would have accepted to pay only a lower price, if he/she had known of such defect.
The Customer may decide to invoke the warranty against hidden defects of the Product sold within the meaning of Article 1641 of the French Civil Code and in this case, he/she can choose between cancellation of the sale or a reduction of the selling price in accordance with Article 1644 of the French Civil Code.
This warranty will only apply if the Customer makes the request within two (2) years of the discovery of the defect according to the Article 1648 of the French Civil Code.
