Lanvin Spring RTW 2010

Alber Elbaz's Spring collection was one of the most amazing shows of the season. With an amazing play on textures, draping and sheer brilliance. The show took place in an industrial space on the out skirts of Paris, with a runway that was said to have been the longest ever. There was an abundance of colors like pink, salmon, peach, and vermilion as well as a dash of extraordinary fine leather and of course the staples of black and gray.

Accessories were STUNNING. From the BEAUTIFUL rope snakes, the large bib necklaces and gigantically over sized chains there necklaces were nothing short of AMAZING with bracelets equally as fabulous. Pops of color and drama from the jewelry pulled the looks of the collection together full circle for me..

Purses and shoes were elegant, and not super over the top, jewel encrusted clutches and smaller hand bags. Shoes were kept simple with anklet details in black & python as well as black and nude leather. They didn't seem as high as most shoes on the runway as of current, which wasn't bad, but would have made this collection even more mind boggling for me..

Lanvin has always been one of the most expensive looking houses for me, the sense of Parisian style and elegance reminds me of what my definition of real glamor is..
