Tonight I finally looked through the much anticipated Lanvin's lookbook for pre-fall 2012 and was really mesmerized. I immediately thought, I must share it with you! The collection, which, according to Lanvin's design director Alber Elbaz, "is about new fabrics, new technologies, and new volumes", represents the signature silhouettes, yet mystified with dark shades and yes, unusual materials like rubberized wool and crinkly patent leather. I think my favorite part of it all was the jewelry, incorporated in the form of exaggerated CAMEOs, a new word for me. For those of you interested, cameo is referred to a method of carving an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery, featuring a raised (positive) relief image. We all have seen them before, anywhere from museums to flee markets and I'm glad this trend is coming back.
What are your thoughts on this collection?
