PFW: Lanvin – Celebrating 125 Years Of Lanvin


This special paris fashion week show holds a symbolic meaning to the high fashion house founded by Jeanne Lanvin and by the artistic direction of one of the maestros of womenswear, Alber Elbaz, here’s to 125 years celebrating the house’s heritage.

Revisiting the archives of the house of Lanvin, Alber Elbaz draws inspiration for this collection from the 1920s offering up a history of brocade and pearls. The effortless way the clothes moved brought forth a raw emotion of comfort and ease, in a carefully crafted concoction of satin and pearls, jersey and brocade, mesh and lace, a overall aura of feministic emotions rolled into one. Even the most simplest of attires that came down the runway had a air of luxury about them, under the guise of the skillful tailoring that Elbaz is most well known for. “I am going back to the girls I love,” said the designer, and of the collection the designer had only three words, “very happy clothes.”
