Designer Alber Elbaz took over the classic fashion house of Lanvin in October 2001. In the video clip mentioned above he talks about how fashion is always reinventing itself but that designers always have to look back (historically) for guidance. “I think that we need new-ness but we also have to know where we’re coming from.” He certainly nods to the classic tailoring and elegance of the original Lanvin designs and re-creates a modern glamour that speaks to today’s fashion consumers.
You can now buy an affordable line of fashion by Lanvin at H&M! **Too bad they don’t sell online yet for all of us NOT fortunate enough to live in a city that has one 😦
