Lanvin glamour at Paris Fashion Week A/W 2012
Alber Elbaz celebrated his 20th anniversary at Lanvin tonight at their Autumn/Winter 2012 show at Paris Fashion Week. I like to see the Elbaz we saw onstage with friend Kim Paper playing glockenspiel with band Pink Martini and presenting a collection full of edgy glamour is the real, truest Elbaz. The collection still had his signature sophistication, but was definitely more rock and roll and amped up. It seems as if the glamour quotient has been increasing as we move through the fashion weeks, starting to become a bona fide trend in Milan and truly dazzling in Paris.
The looks that weren't ultra bedazzled with faux jewels and fur were sent down the runway in strong silhouettes and bold colors. Darker dresses were dripping with detail and embellishment to make the heart race.
After the show Elbaz sang Que Sera, Sera to guests including Tilda Swinton, Jessica Alba and Dita Von Teese. It was a heartwarming celebration of his artistic genius and he seemed to enjoy every second, as we have enjoyed his career.
