Elegant Retro by Lanvin at Paris Fashion Week

3524

A weeping willow has become the background of the new Lanvin collection at Paris Fashion Week. “Everybody needs a tree,” the creative director of the fashion house Alber Elbaz said before the fashion show. “Branches, roots… We go back to our traditional roots.”

The ascetic collection is largely consonant with the creative activity of Elbaz’ teacher, Jeffrey Bean, and unlike others, it has been performed mainly in dark colors with an outbreak of the aristocratic scarlet hues at the very end.

Wide-brimmed hats, form-fitting coat trimmed with gems, tweed ponchos, lacquered Brogo, vintage rectangular handbags – at first it seemed that Elbaz appealed to the conservative 1960-s. However, in the middle of the fashion show, typical Lanvin details appeared on the podium: wavy sleeves in the haute couture style, magnificent jacquard skirts, ruffles, and romantic transparent silk exposing the graceful silhouette.

The spirit of the old-fashioned time and the atmosphere of the grandmother’s chest did not fail to impress the guests during the fashion show. And the models presented by Elbaz looked just so warm, cozy, and aristocratic!
