Lanvin Catwalk fashion Show Paris Womenswear SS2014
For spring Alber Elbaz offered a beautiful Lanvin-collection full of shine, gloss viagra online and glimmer but also with a dark and offensive side. It was inspired in part by a photograph of the brocade-clad women, bride included, at an orthodox Jewish wedding in Jerusalem, their grim visages suggestive of unspoken woes, “everything shining,” the designer said during a preview, “but their eyes.”
He thought, too, about the notion of the clothes as mirrors, to reflect the audience. He also thought to bring back regular clothes, sportswear and celebrate the individual.
Elbaz offered chic clothes for every woman: refined, sexy, elegant, butch, relaxed. Sportswear looks were casual, androgynous tailoring paid respect to Yves Saint Laurent, and an elastic-waist jumpsuit both celebrated and mocked its utilitarian roots.
Uniting this diversity was the endless gloss in 60 different fabrics — multiple textures of lamés, tweeds, laces, brocades and on in a beautiful spectrum from earthy golds to the most vibrant jewel tones.
