I have a fashion genius box and only select designer names have been place into this box since the early eighties. Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Missoni, just to name a few and now Alber Elbaz is the new member. I love his understated but yet architectural designs.
Lanvin is known for sculptural innovative pieces. This fall 2009 collection was channeling the glamorous forties with chic skirt suits, leather gloves and fur stoles. Some of the garments were adorned with tubular statement necklaces. The color palette was neutrals; black, charcoal and ivory and a touch of red.
Lanvin is for the modern woman with a cutting edge. She knows it's a recession but she refuses to look like she is going through it!
