Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 Collection

The year 2012 began for Alber Elbaz with a celebration. This year, the designer is going to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his being the head of Lanvin, and his new pre-fall collection has become an ode to the novelties of 2012 in everything, ranging from fabrics and silhouettes and finishing with technologies.

One of the most impressive features of the new Lanvin Pre-Fall 2012 collection is spacious, almost sculptural shapes with deliberately raised and rounded shoulders, both in dense autumn coats and in tops or dresses. Traditional Lanvin cocktail dresses, made of colored or restrained black silk, are complemented by the properly chosen accessories – long, up to the elbow, gloves, large pendants on long silk ribbons (which, incidentally, have already become a kind of Lanvin’s “business card»).
