After the first few days of more lacklustre names on the schedule, Paris Fashion Week started off yesterday with the big guns: an eclectic collection by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. The variety of garments, shapes, fabrics and prints makes this collection quite hard to describe through a theme or a clear destination, but what it definitely was is stunning! The collection was designed as to fit a woman's ever changing moods and ideas - a tailored suit here, a silk day dress there all our longings in one show. The dark color palette was mixed with more natural, skintone colors and the styling was different, depending on the garments - a bold red lip matched the and a dark purple smoky eye for the.
A very interesting touch were the necklaces and brooches with words imitating the handwriting, such as hello, love, happy or cool. Among may favorite looks were the black blouse with the embroidered white roses, the navy dress worn by Cara Delevigne, the red and black dress, the black and white dress with the ruffled top, the elegant furs, the taupe ruffled top and of course the simple pale pink dress worn by Ginta Lapina and the last gown. here is my selection of the best looks from the runway:
Such a variety of looks! Can you pick any favorites?
