Fall 2009 Women's RTW Lanvin
For all those who may not be familiar with the Lanvin label, it is a fashion house which had originally been started by Jeanne Lanvin, one of the most influential French fashion designers in the 1920’s and 1930’s. Well-known among the wealthy, it almost went into obscurity with the general population but has in recent years made a comeback appointing Alber Elbaz as the head designer for the women’s collection.
The collection resembled a cross between 1940’s Film Noir starlet and a German officer's wife. Elbaz was able to create some timeless pieces in this collection, which I can definitely see being worn five years from now. Details such as drapes, knots, bows were all interesting twists to each garment.
