I am totally in love with Lanvin! Alber Elbaz is beyond designer status and in my book is in the file of designer icon. His use of materials, for instance, what a wool crepe can do with a bit of stitching, or a stunning jersey draped into a fabulous resort gown!
I just saw the resort collection
at Bergdorfs and all I can say is I want it all! The collection is fabulous, fantastic and there are pieces that would be insane for spring!
“There are many designers whose work can make women look thinner or prettier. Elbaz seems to have the power to make women appear more interesting.” – Ariel Levy for The Observer
In 1889 Jeanne Lanvin, aged 22, arrived at the Faubourg Saint Honoré to work as a milliner. By the early 20th century Lanvin was one of the Premiere Fashion Houses representing the epitome of French chic.
THE FOUNDER OF AN INTERNATIONAL FASHION HOUSE WHICH STILL LEADS TODAY’S FASHION INDUSTRY.
Her fashion house is the oldest fashion house still in existence worldwide. It has been selling clothing for over a century. Since its creation, Lanvin’s fashion line, titled Lanvin, has advanced the high fashion industry.
Her line became the first to dress the entire family when she introduced a men’s line in 1926. The line continued to innovate the industry as it brought luxurious French fashion to the general public in a recent collaboration
with the clothing store H&M. Lanvin clothing became available in 200 H&M locations worldwide
Flash forward almost 50 years to 2002, when Alber Elbaz, was named artistic director. Best known for his asymmetrical, draped Grecian goddess silhouettes. Alber’s genius vision has once again made the Lanvin collection a must-have
for fashion insiders worldwide.
What else is there to say-except if you don’t follow this genius you will want to!
