At a preview in Paris, Alber Elbaz said he focused on daywear at Lanvin for prefall. “But not conventional daywear,” he noted, adding that he’s striving to “bring fun back to fashion.” Thus jogging pants were a key look. Working the alluringly chic side of sporty, one version of the silhouette came in a hammered satin with tuxedo striping and was worn with a simple satin bustier top. Other styles were done in wool jersey and knits, paired with toppers such as a goat-fur trenchcoat that flared from the hips like a dress.
Elbaz wrapped some of the looks in graphic fox-fur and knit stoles, while floppy, beaten fedora hats added a casual appeal.
