Show Review: Lanvin Spring 2013
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

For Lanvin‘s Spring 2013 collection, Creative Director Alber Elbaz held fast to a murky color palette, masculine silhouettes, and looser fits. With nary a peplum in sight, the designer re-imagined the Lanvin woman, and this season, she happens to be very thin and straight-hipped.

Elbaz largely bet on black, dishing out several boxy separates and dresses tailored on straight peaks. Sharp edges, plunging necklines, and knife-slice cutouts were the name of the game this season. Texture, from tulle to shimmering gold bead embellishments served to uplift the mostly monochromatic palette.

The designer kept things sleek and sexy with a few skin-clinging jumpsuits and dresses, uplifted by shiny metallic accents. Satin-y bows fastened wraparound tunics, vests, and tied off the sides of the more feminine-looking frocks. Their presence brought a welcome dose of softness.

We were treated to a much-needed dash of color with a few silken, jewel toned pieces.

I am a huge fan of Lanvin– I love how Alber’s designs typically appeal to those ultrafeminine sensitbilites. This season, however, I forgot I was looking at a spring collection. The black-on-black, deep jewel tones– it was all very autumnal/ holiday. I was looking forward to the “grown and sexy yet girly” aesthetic the brand usually emanates, but instead I got something a little different. At any rate, I’m sure we’ll see serial Lanvin wearer Jennifer Lopez in one (or a few) of these pieces.

What do you think?

    Grace Bol is just beautiful! My-gah…

    Alber really knows how to make a very sexy yet quite sophisticated dress. I sense the big houses are really making chic minimalism a comeback trend for spring (waiting for the big 2- YSL, and Dior). I really could not be happier with it. I personally dig the black and white, as it is my preferred “color” palette throughout the year. Great show!

    I liked it. Lots of right off the runway pieces.

    Damn! I wish I could sew.

    I love all the black outfits, but I would love it so much more if the models would just be a little less thinner. (just to imagine better how I could be looking in these fabulously beautiful outfits!)
