PARIS — Celebrating his 10th anniversary at the creative helm of Lanvin, you might think Alber Elbaz would allow himself a little self-congratulation.
After all, he catapulted the French brand into a beacon for soigné dressing. A ticket to a Lanvin show is among the most coveted of Paris Fashion Week. What’s more, the Lanvin business is buoyant — sales last year bounded 24 percent — and the house seems comfortably in place among fashion’s big leagues.
