Lanvin Pre-Fall 2010

I have always been a huge fan of Lanvin and once again Alber Elbaz cease's to amaze me. It is the ultimate collection filled with an Eastern European style that includes luscious fabrics such as lace, velvets, and wool and an enormous dose of fur. Animal prints, velvety reds, moss greens, and burnt oranges give life to the fabrics. When there is a look shown that is head-to-toe black it is by far not done in a mundane fashion, but is rather full of luxurious fabrics and textures along with rhinestones that drip down the neckline. There is an old world vibe that appears in the collection with thick fur coats and head scarves that are so wonderfully old fashioned and remind me of my Grandmother from Italy. This collection is dramatic, rich, and filled with culture which overflows my love for fashion with excitement and pure joy.
