At Lanvin Headquarters

I have been waiting for a while to present you this.

During last fashion week in Paris, I was invited to the headquarters of Lanvin House, for a private view of the Spring/Summer 2013 collection, after the fashion show. A huge fan of Alber Elbaz myself, I could never miss such an appointment.

The gorgeous Lanvin silk fabrics looked absolutely amazing in the famous bright colors that the house uses, such as pomegranate pink and emerald green. Some high-tech additions, like the digital prints of naked female bodies that seem to move with you, creating the illusion of nudeness. Much less embroidery, apart from four or five pieces and some details on the dresses. Bodysuits: *swoon*. BUT. The greatest highlight of them all -maybe because I’m too much of a sharp-suit type myself: the tuxedos. Inspired by far east, Japanese tradition and origamis, Elbaz created the perfect, slightly deconstructed suit, with quiet bows and cropped jackets, some of them even sleeveless, combined with his popular it-piece: the silk shirt.

A down to earth collection, deprived of any trace of unnecessary extravaganza.

A post with the accessories of the collection to follow pretty soon.
