I really loved the look of Lanvin's Fall 2009 collections. With a bit of forties flair paired with influences of Parisian style, I found this collection to be very glam. Fabulous ruching, strong sexy suits, all paired with full lengthen black leather gloves, showcased the Lanvin woman as strong and powerfully confident.
Bag's were done in a classic shapes with fabulous materials like croc and silk with amazing embellishments. The use of fur was in heavy rotation, from amazing stoles to full waist length coats completing the glamorous ensemble.
Accessories were HUGE, from very angular, geometric pieces to bold, rounded & stacked neck hugging pieces studded with enormous simulated diamonds and pearl accents in an array of sizes. I LOVE the jewelry, some of the boldest pieces I've seen so far for the Fall 2009 season.
Shoes were kept simple in shape, with various different heel shapes with metallic accents on them. Booties, caged toe heel's and simple classic pumps as well as a pair of thigh high boots with a platform toe.All together I feel like the collection was very well executed (duh). It exuded the a strength and confidence that is very appealing in today's shaky economy.
