While some are deep into futuristic experiments in mixtures not collected that do not totally convincing , other major Parisian houses do what they do best giving: create beautiful clothes that feel good, that support and will always be stylish and chic, and within two years, ten or twenty.
Lanvin is the case that the hand of Alber Elbaz manages to be one of the best shows of Fashion Week in Paris each season.
The parade of the Lanvin autumn / winter collection 2011/2012 started very sober, all black, with coats and coats with stringent cuts, shoes men and little concession to the flourishes and details. I reminded the collection of Yves Saint Laurent Fall 2010, with many touches monastery.
But gradually the show has been encouraging, making way for asymmetric tunics with great movement.
A sober floral prints, lace and even polka dot pattern.
A dress with amazing volume.
To finish in a grand finale in beautiful dresses with floral colors with subtle drapes and gathers that hug the female body.
All with the stamp of one of the best designers that currently exist (now that big names are falling one after another).
