Fashion Week Paris - Lanvin

Alber Elbaz and the Triple X—Xtravagant, Xtreme and Xperiment. The name sets high expectations and the show started as a cinematic shadow play. While the faces of the models disappeared in the shadow of their hat pieces, there was a strong focus on material and textures which was emphasized with fringed, ruffled or raw-edged seams showing an destructive power.
The extravagant pieces could be seen in the pleated black leather dress or the midnight duchesse satin framed in beads. Experimental was the black and white high collared dress where Elbaz played with opulence of material and pattern.
