Lanvin Fall/Winter 2012

Though there are still a few days left in PFW, Alber Elbaz’s lively Lanvin 10th Anniversary may have been the week’s coup de grâce. With A-Listers in the audience and a slew of runway divas on his catwalk Alber threw what could go down as the event of the season. Frosted birthday cakes, glittering chandeliers, a live performance by Pink Martini and of course a collection full of the sensual shapes that made him a favorite of industry insiders, luxury buyers and real women alike.

The mix of body conscious pieces played like a remixed version of Elbaz’ key ideas. You had the bold shots of color, the nipped waists accentuated with curved peplums, voluminous coats, metallic brocade, rich hued furs and so many other delights to marvel at. We may know what to expect from Lanvin, but we’re never bored with it. The consistency of vision and uncompromising quality are part of the allure. In the musical chairs world of fashion, where designers shuffle in and out of luxury houses day after day, many talents have trouble finding their footing. Elbaz has not only defined the look of his house, he’s enriched it; here’s to 10 more incredible years.
