f/w 09.10 paris: lanvin.


there are times when you see a collection and it just makes you stop and admire the beauty and loveliness that is fashion. i think that every time i see a lanvin show. ever since taking the reins of the house, alber elbaz has created a language that is all about appreciating women. he understands that every woman is different but that every woman wants to feel beautiful. no matter if she’s wearing a day dress, suit, coat, lbd, or gown, each piece is designed with the lines and the curves of a woman in mind. he knows that sometimes a woman wants simplicity (as seen in simple silk bias cut dresses, a slit neck suit, or a sleek single breasted coat) and sometimes she wants opulence (an amazing tulle dress with side ruching, cashmere and mink scarves, gold beading and devore velvet). in today’s economy where spending money on real fashion is a real luxury, the clothes you buy should be equally luxurious. these are those clothes.
