lanvin_alberelbaz_londonstore.jpgOne of our favourite designers, Alber Elbaz, was in London last week to open the first Lanvin store on Mount Street.

With a girls-only store policy, at least during the day, the designer entertained the likes of Yasmin Le Bon, Anouck Lepere, Stephen Jones and Juergen Teller.

"It was a wonderful event. Alber talked as each model came out and gave us lots of little details about the creation of each one and lovely anecdotes about his life in fashion - a particularly nice poignant one was about Yves Saint Laurent," said Vogue fashion director, Lucinda Chambers.
