Alber Elbaz’ absence could be felt throughout the entire Lanvin show. Like you’d expect when a creative leaves after such a long period of being head designer, Lanvin’s fall/winter collection lacked of a strong vision, some soul, as you will. Femininity (lace, ruffles, shiny satin, bustiers) and masculinity (tweed, checks, tuxedos) came together in a mix of eighties inspired outfits. Touches of velvet and fur added to the richness of the collection. As chunky chokers and mesmerizing metallic earrings (forget that accessorizing rule about never wearing a necklace and earrings at the same time) delivered the strongest statement. The color palette went from pastel like (light peach, lavender and icy blue) to deeper shades (burgundy and deep blue). It made f/w2016 not the most cohesive collection. There was a definite new romantics vibe going on, yet we certainly missed some of Alber’s recognizable touches. Understandably so though, let’s give the new design team some more time.
