Lanvin Winter 2015 women's collection
"The homage to Jeanne Lanvin at the Museum Galliera made me feel the need to go back to my own roots, to Marocco where I was born" - Alber Elbaz.
From the cities to the deserts, an easterly wind blows over the metropolis: a wind that make you want to wrap up in long sharp-edged blanket coats, oversized Tibetan goat or in saffron and gold lame pyjamas. Calling on all desires, from the most opulent to the most graphic - the gloss and the matte skim each other - super-imposed endlessly in a game of contrasts...a Lanvin signature.
Under striped woolen capes, we find brocade chiffon dresses with passementerie belts, silk braiding, plaited tassels, toggle fastenings and gold cords.
The Lanvin Winter 2015 collection is a ticket to all urban trips, a celebration of movement in all latitudes.
The place of honour goes to passementerie: just like a stroke of kohl accentuating the eyes, it highlights braided woolen boleros, gathers Amazonian dresses and sets ablaze rock crystal dickeys worn as talismans.
Gypsum cabochons, felt capes with asymmetric edges together with sandal booties with twisted uppers, and piped gold riding boots with a block heel create the look of these nomads in a breath of love and light.
There, where the eye and the hand of craftsmen make a presence from every passage, like an apparition: an intarsia mink coat appears reflecting its precious marquetry of 4000 pieces.
The LANVIN NOMAD handbag follows this wind in grained lambskin, black ostrich ink nubuck calfskin and caramel python. True luxury is a look, a hand, a needle, a thread.
