Lanvin Pre-Fall "08
Lanvin's Alber Elbaz is undoubtedly my favorite designer at the moment. Why? He consistently comes up with drop dead gorgeous collections that I--and I think most women--WANT to wear. He, for the most part, keeps things simple, but with perfect amounts of dazzle or drama, whether it be through color, draping, or my personal favorite, sparkle. He encompasses sex-appeal and femininity without crossing the line of being too 'girlie'. His creations are timeless, yet still youthful and exciting. (Scroll down for my round-up of his brilliant spring '08 collection.) Most of all, his collections, through and through, are 100% wearable.
So there you have it. And now, let me stop and let the clothes speak for themselves. Here are my picks from Lanvin's pre-fall '08 collection. Oh yeah!
