“There’s more than meets the eye” is Alber Elbaz’s latest catchphrase at Lanvin, thus clothes that at first sight looked rather simple were actually loaded with elaborate details and done in experimental shapes and fabrics. A sculptural pink dress was done in satin and a double-face technical fabric, featuring exposed darts and seams, while the shiny dark red fabric of a trench and dress “twin set” appeared to be a crinkled vinyl but was actually a luxe combo of cotton gabardine bonded with patent leather. And for outerwear, there was an A-line jacket in crushed wool and neoprene jersey. Another point of interest: This collection is the first of the year celebrating the 10 year-tenure of Elbaz at Lanvin so all the new tags read “Lanvin Les 10 Ans.”
