“I prefer being relevant to being cool, because if you’re cool, you’re also cold the next day. So it’s more about being relevant. The one thing that always scares me is to be like the Miss America of the moment, because next year there is a new Miss America.”
I have always been a fan of Alber Elbaz’s work and his Lanvin RTW Spring 2016 collection is no exception.Pursuing the boundaries between fashion design and the same design as perceived at the era of instant photos and video transmissions.Elbaz himself was heard saying at the show’s preview that : “We used to be designers. Now, we’re image-makers,” a concept that indeed characterized the collection. Working with black and white basics and proceeding to bolder color choices Elbaz showed the fun side of chic,a very modern approach he perfectly embraced.There also gowns that looked revealing yet embodied strong constructed foundations,loose silhouettes under luxurious cardigans,sequined pieces plus some excellent lace dresses,again based on nude optical illusion that worked well.I also loved the adornements/accessories-bold bows,fancy pins,flowers and.. Those bags-pure objets du desir!
