Emotion — It's a key word for Alber Elbaz, and one to which the designer refers when describing his aesthetic and the secret of his success at Lanvin, where he is the creative director. The notion also comes up frequently in his career, from his roller-coaster creative process before each collection to the kinds of dresses he designs.
At Lanvin, Elbaz did not just resurrect a sleeping beauty and transform it into one of the most desirable fashion brands in Paris today, but with his designs, he has helped up the allure of French fashion overall.
