LANVIN HIT: London wasn’t the only town feting Alber Elbaz last week. Barneys New York held a two-day trunk show of Lanvin’s fall collection. “It was a nice, uplifting, positive, good energy in the store,” said Barneys’ executive vice president and general merchandise manager Judy Collinson. While the store wouldn’t disclose the total sales at the trunk show, Collinson said bestsellers included a black wool dress with a gathered shoulder for $2,800, the Amalia quilted tote for $1,475 and the Happy python-cut leather bag for $1,965. Lanvin’s fur-and-knit pieces that can accessorize a dress or jacket also fared well, as did the ballerina shoes for $850 and wedge knee-high boots for $1,550.
