In these uncertain times, Alber Elbaz still believes in dreams and the power of glamour and beauty. For Lanvin, he took paillettes and lamé to a new level and introduced luxe evening fabrics for day. He offered up brocade blouson jackets, ruffled lace cocktail dresses, beaded skirts with elastic waists and cozy knits and furs — all perfectly draped to a woman’s frame. Although he recycled elements from past collections, Elbaz updated some pieces by reducing volume for “real life,” as he put it, and added self-attached waist-cinching belts and ribbons to emphasize shape.
