LANVIN FW2015 Femme Collection Alber Elbaz pays homage Jeanne Lanvin at the Museum Galliera museum made him feel the need to go back to my own roots, to Morocco, where he was born.
Opulent and strict. Dry and warm. Raw and precious. Black and white. Collarless and buttonless. Graphic and unexpected. Opaque and transparent. Lean and oversized.
Masculine and feminine. Berber stripes and floral motifs. Panne velvet and boiled alpaca, washed silks, real matte python and faux python in glossy lambskin.
A patchwork of textures, honey colored sensations and sweet nectars. Colors of etchings and soil: red pomegranate, blue ink, cinnamon and deep burgundy, brown, grey and black baked in the sun.
From the city to the desert, an easterly wind blows over the metropolis: a wind that makes you want to wrap up in a long sharp-edged blanket coat, a vest in oversized Tibetan goat or in a pair of lamé saffron and gold pyjamas.
Calling on all desires, from the most opulent to the most graphic - the gloss and the matte skim each other - superimposed in an endless game of contrasts... a Lanvin signature.
Under striped woollen capes, we find brocade chiffon dresses with passementerie belts, silk braiding, plaited tassels, toggle fastenings and gold cords. The Lanvin Winter 2015 collection is an invitation to urban travel.
The LANVIN NOMAD handbag follows this wind in grained lambskin, black ostrich, ink-colored nubuck calfskin and caramel python. True luxury is a look, a hand, a needle and a thread.
