NEW YORK — Alber Elbaz on Wednesday evening was putting the finishing touches on the Lanvin (Heart) H&M collection he’ll show tonight at the Pierre Hotel. Elbaz chose 20 looks, which he customized for the runway with strategically placed bows and fabric flowers, piles of necklaces, netting and hats. He took a strapless ruffle dress and added more layers and turned men’s wear into sexy and elegant styles for women.
“We took a lot of things from our collection and translated them differently,” Elbaz said. “We’re seeing how you make it your own and elevate it. We customized a men’s coat. It has new buttons.”
