"Forty-six looks are for day,"Alber Elbez said, as he showcased his ability to make more than just cocktail dresses. His tactic for Pre-Fall was to be light on the chit-chat, approaching the collection without a special theme or particular inspiration. "Even in the studio, I didn't let them work on a story," Elbaz noted.
Focusing on the beauty of each piece by itself, the collection featured a variety of chic seperates, from floral print mini dresses to black t-shirts with feather decorations, "All the pieces people are looking for – a coat for the weekend, a dress for traveling, a pair of pants, high-heeled shoes that you can walk in," he said in the Lanvin headquarters.
However, a Lanvin collection wouldn't be complete without Elbaz's signature draping, done across a series of skirts, and menswear also got a chic revamp as a heavy belted trench coat was done in a mannish check pattern, which was seen repeated on a few daytime pieces.
Elbaz's footwear choices were equally as bold, as models wore jewelled leather trainers and heeled black-leather and gold-snakeskin boots. There was also a myriad of pretty accessories from black snakeskin messanger bags to a navy hat worn tilted, offering that effortless city vibe for the modern woman.
