Tonight's Lanvin show saw the celebration of Alber Elbaz's love for women. The clothes he created this season were stunningly timeless, classic and sophisticated. The House of Lanvin celebrates it's 125th year, making it one of the oldest couture houses. To draw influence for his latest collection, Elbaz visited the Lanvin archive, with original pieces by Jeanne Lanvin herself. He said that the clothes were very sophisticated and chic, using simple lines and colour combinations such as gold and black and the famous house blue (#2). For the casting of Spring 2015, he went back and looked at all the models he had used previously in his shows, such as Amber Valletta, Kirsten Owen, Violetta Sanchez, Natasa Vojnovic, and more iconic names.

For a designer, I think it's so easy to design and draw your own creations. Creations which can be really wild and imaginative. But it's also easy to lose your customer's needs at the same time. Some designers (especially young designers) create wild clothes, some which are even unwearable in daily life. And for Elbaz, who's been doing this for a long time, he knows what the Lanvin woman wants. He designs sophisticated and elegant clothing, the cast for Spring 2015 featured models of a broad age range, which will appeal to older women. When I was watching the original show, it was very nice to hear the crowd cheering and roaring for Elbaz and I can clearly see why.
