Lanvin Spring Summer 2013

Lanvin couldn’t be beautiful forever, so I guess I’m not surprised they finally showed a collection that was no good. It’s not hideously bad, there are still some beautiful Alber Elbaz dresses and tailoring, but the clunky silhouettes, poorly fit dresses, and unflattering shapes are far from what his customer will want to wear. Let’s just hope this is a one-off bad season, everyone is allowed one of those.

I love…

a beautiful dress with a chunky gold neckpiece.

slick, sexy tailoring.

I loathe…

a clunky, over-designed dress.

that I’m not sure if this is supposed to be a Halloween costume.

bulky, one-shouldered jumpsuits.

when a rectangle of fabric hung on the front of a body is considered a dress.
