Leave it to Lanvin to bring back the Western look. Think it’s played out for fall? Think again. Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz added a new spin with a sleek and chic approach to the cowgirl boot that left no doubt of its continued appeal. With a polished wooden heel, embossed and harness details and metal plating at the toe, the look was an authentic and artistic take on the classic. Paired with Elbaz’s structured looks in sumptuous fabrications, this standout spring style was not remotely country.
