PFW: Lanvin

0“I’ve been thinking more about how people think. The world is changing and so is the way women are dressing. People are asking questions – who are the next designers, who is the next Pope? So this is an elaboratory collection,” Alber Elbaz told Vogue post-show. And what did this bring? A reflective collection that blended couture with ready-to-wear for a powerful AW’13 look.

Pieces of Note:
Flat shoes with strapless prom dresses and Thirties slips, pleated skirts and fur stoles, then androgyny Thirties-style, with sparkling heels to dress it up. Word necklaces pronounced “love”, “help” and “happy”, whilst the collection went from jewel-bedecked princess, to Thirties vamp, to utilitarian wartime chic, to cocktail party in a summer garden and then finishing with a nod to that oh-so couture finish – a bride.
Style: Take the mundane and the normal, and vamp it up with some couture cool. The Thirties are hip, and textures are key.
