LANVIN 2015 Pre Fall Collection was presented at his Faubourg Saint-Honore studion where he transformed his space into a 'grandma's house' seeting to give editors the comfort they're lacking of in current days according to his view.
In the room decorated with well-worn velvet sofas, antique floral painting, chunky ashtraps, a napping goldfish and Persian cat, he intended to slow down the pace of the hectic fashion week to have a valuable time with his fellow men and women guests.
The clothes he showed had a similar intimacy.
Sumptuous textures and and generous proportions, loading of colorful crystal pendants or brooches and paired with men's oxfords or knew-high boots, a short sheath in rose brocade under a gleaming metallic duffle finished with leopard-print loafers a bag, a long wrap skirt paired with tee shirt, all representing the notion of glam casual chic.
"Mix" is the key message, while the confidence to be comfortable, to be intimate is the quintessential elegance of Lanvin's 2015 Pre Fall collection.
"Pre Collection is about refelction and a reflection on now. We are no longer listening, we are taping. We're not talking, we are posting and we are not looking, just filming." Says Alber Elbaz.
