Lanvin: Resort 2013

We heard, through a very reliable grapevine source, that Lanvin Resort 2013 was about being a bit “practical and forgiving”  along with Alber Elbaz‘s latest fascination (personally I think it’ s an ongoing one) with necklaces, bangles and comfy elasticized waistbands you can just reach out and snap!  Whoops!

All true, but Alber also focused on crinkled silk pajamas, his continued play on black and white with an expansion into bold stripes, red (channeling Emma Stone’s success at The Met), brilliant silhouettes that are great for the body conscious and highlighting the waist, lamé (how very clever) and a new sexy, pointed toe streamlined pump that I love.

It all seems so ridiculously early to think about Resort, but at the behest of Anna Wintour wanting to see the smaller collections photographed on models, versus just on racks, this is now an integrated part of the eight season process.  We have our trend round-up on Resort coming up, but Lanvin, once again stole our hearts and seduced us.
