Every garment radiates elegance and chic sophistication.

Alber Elbaz hardly ever disappoints and his Resort 2014 collection falls nothing short of exquisite. Call me biased, since he’s one of my most loved designers, but this recent collection only validates my love for Lanvin. A perfect mix of neutrals and bold pops of jewel tones leaves your senses craving more. Simple silhouettes are accentuated by rich fabrics and dramatic embellishments. I adore the ultra femme draping to offset some of the more structured looks. He brings new life to classic shapes by adding lush textures, vibrant hues and just the perfect touch of opulence to make each piece luxurious. Mirror details and gaudy hardware keeps that touch of drama I just swoon for. He has a way of meshing captivating colors and prints with the classics to deliver a stunning collection that can read both modern and timeless at the same time.  

I love the breadth in his assortment that offers everything from suiting, casual and formal dresses to career separates.The simple pant suit is re-imagined in a vibrant fuchsia, the maxi dress delivered color-blocked with a high slit. From the modern pant suit to the tunic dress, he re-invents the traditional by adding surprising twists that make it exciting. Every garment radiates elegance and chic sophistication. The execution is perfection down to the last detail and this collection has tremendous editorial appeal as it continues to provide looks that women aspire to embody.
