Lanvin Resort 2012
Is there any other designer of female clothes who has their finger on the pulse of fashion more than Alber Elbaz? The man is a GOD of design, a real stalwart who ably gives us that perfect mix of art and commercialism. I can't find any other word to use other than "exquisite" to describe these pieces.
I especially loved the use of plissé on some of the pieces, and how opulent it made them look. Speaking of opulence, the chokers, chains, beads, and pendants that decorated each neckline were a thing to behold; this is a house known equally for its accessories as its clothes, after all.
Also on display were a few pieces of Elbaz' cutesy new children's line, and I can just imagine the cost of those. No worries, as i'm sure discerning fashionista mothers out there will shell the bucks out for that.
