Lanvin’s fall 2012 collection gave a direction which I was not prepared towards! Whenever I think about Lanvin, I think about beautiful color palettes with laser cut clean lines with the greatest draping garments. The color palette was black and white. Black and White is my favorite color combination, but this is something hard to digest. This is expected from a Dior or Chanel of course.
The collection featured a textures of velvet skirts which float itself in the air with sleeveless blouses. Then creative director, Alber Elbaz flipped the scripted with a showcase of embellished dresses loaded with luxurious studs and jewels. The collection’s accessories was an attention grabber! Giving the imagination of the glamorous nostalgic women of Hollywood, the models were accessorize in mink scarves and classical gloves, which are practically non-existent in our generation!
It has been 10 years since Alber Elbaz has been with the brand. There has not been a dull moment and he only gets better.
