Backstage at Lanvin Spring/Summer 2017

The fashion world was shocked when veteran Lanvin designer, Alber Elbaz, got fired from the brand last year. At a time when many designers were leaving fashion houses, not many seemed optimistic at the state of play in the fashion industry. 

Fast forward to 2016, at Bouchra Jarrar’s first showing for Lanvin. Sure, she is no Alber Elbaz, but her collection still hit all the right notes for me. The sheer pieces played up the sensuality of the female body; but the masculine jackets brought a nice contrast to the outfits. And amen to the flats!
