I have always been fascinated by Alber Elbaz’s collections for Lanvin but his Pre-Fall 2012 is just perfect. I love the silhouettes (though they look a bit rough and sometimes even untidy), the colors (there is a lot of black with additions of red, green, nude and brown) and the jewelry is mesmerizing.
Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 collection features amazing coats. Shapes are great (balloon one is my favorite!), styles are unexpected (just look at that military-inspired double-breasted one with feminine pleats, isn’t it wonderful?) and the shades are so lovely (love the charcoal blue!).
Dresses in Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 collection are very different. There is a romantic nude frock with frill details, a sparkling mini paired with elbow-length gloves and a red patent leather belt, sexy blue and green dresses finished with long cameo necklaces as well as a totally chic black organza dress.
As for accessories (which are always bold and statement in Lanvin), they are very womanly this time. Cameo necklace and brooches look very stylish and have a feeling of some memory, gloves add chic to outfits, belts are rather traditional but the way they are used is unusual, and bags are exhisite and sophisticated.
Shoes in Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 collection didn’t impress but there is one pair that I would be happy to add to my collection – the satin stilettos with huge bows.
