LANVIN SPRING/SUMMER COLLECTION
BY MOROCCAN BORN ISRAELI
ALBER ELBAZ
A stunning collection comprising of two wartime stories.
One was tough, severe an unapologetic, the other was bright, soft and conveyed a feeling of optisim.
The first half of the collection ran a military theme.
Models had their hair in medieval-styles and some
with bowl cuts and shaven completely.
The were clad in army boots, layers of mouldered leather,
snakeskins and shiny leather in traditional military tones,
of browns, navvy and grey.
Zips was a significant detail used to the best effect when
placed in the center of the knee length jackets
creating a long lean silhouette.
The tough looks was eventually toned down
with softer tones of lilac, dove grey and mustard.
