Paris Fashion Week: Lanvin “A BUGS LIFE”


The life of a bug, we think, is beautiful, precious, and complex.

Such is the Lanvin collection Alber Elbaz presented in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux-Art. As with all Lanvin shows, the music was like a Bond movie, fast pace and confident, like the Lanvin woman. Hemlines fell to the knees and beyond. A trend we saw in New York, Milan, and now Paris. Dresses were appliqued and printed with silk rosettes and jeweled bugs.

We continue to see the exposed zipper. Blouses in silk organza, ruffled, layered and tucked into wool pleated trousers and full pleated skirts. All were worn with men style loafer and lace ups that were done in velvet, white leather, and patent leather. Fur chubbies /stoles, jeweled bug brooches, oversize chain link, and pearl necklaces with the words “LOVE”, HAPPY” etc. were worn with silk dresses.

I’m always partial to Lanvin, because Alber makes beautiful clothes for strong women who love color and lots of detail. This collection had it all.
