NEW YORK,(Reuters) – French fashion house Lanvin may sell a stake of itself to a Middle Eastern investor, according to a report on Wednesday.

Citing market sources, Women’s Wear Daily reported that Lanvin owner Shaw-Lan Wang had been in talks to sell a portion of the brand to an investment vehicle linked to Qatar’s ruling family.

One industry source declined to name the investment entity and noted that a deal was not certain, the paper said.

Lanvin officials in Paris were not immediately available.
