Lanvin Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Womenswear FW2014
Xtravagant, Xtreme, and Xperiment; it was a triple X collection for Lanvin. The extravagant part was visible through pleated leather, shiny satin and large amounts of fur. Among other creations a big fringed, flamenco tweed dress could pass for the extreme part. And overall Alber Elbaz seemed to have been experimenting with silhouettes, textures and.. fringes. Starting of pretty raw and edgy, the show turned more glamorous and sophisticated towards the finale of color blocked, fringed (of course) party dresses. Wide brimmed hats often covered the models’ fresh faces, chunky pieces of jewelry and tasseled leather bags truly made a statement as well. It all felt quite heavy shows on the runway, but seen in daylight, without the darkness of the show area and the extreme styling, there will be beautiful slip dresses, silk gowns and tweed skirt suits for that elegant Lanvin lady. Backstage Alber said he wanted to go back to the dream factory fashion once was all about. And a dream it was.. a fringed one, that is.
