This is beyond sad. Lanvin was always one of the few shows that I looked forward to during fashion month. I wonder if his partner will stay at Lanvin as well.

Rather him than Tisci for Dior. Raf for Lanvin?

I say Alber goes to Dior, Haider takes over Lanvin and Riccardo can stay put in Givenchy!!

I already feel sorry for fashionista-ta, this might force you to buy his entire last collection?

Good thing for him, lanvin has indeed gotten quite stale lately. Silhouettes are the more or less same and even the runway lighting is the same old dark, smoky, smoldering look. Not that he is not talented but it does gives the vibes that he is tired.
And I absolutely agree with alber that lanvin needs to pump in more investments. It does feel like it is in a world of its own sometimes and is incoherent with what the major fashion houses are doing, and whilst I rather dislike the entire LVMH/ Kering cookie cutter way of promoting their brands, lanvin's isn't doing it effectively.
And I disagree that it isn't expensive, I often feel lanvin is overpriced, especially the men's, but that could be because they don't have the economies of scale with production, promotion etc.

Not such a bad move, lanvin needs fresh blood and Alber needs greener pastures!

As much good as he's done for Lanvin, his collections the last few years have gotten repetitive and stale. I think this is a good move for both.

What ?? Certainly didn't see this coming.
I would love to see him at Dior and Pilati at Lanvin. Now let's wait & see...

cannot agree with this, there’s so much of the rtw that is on sale at the end cause the prices are double what they should be.

WWD said Alber officially left the house, confirmed by Lanvin.

We all love the guessing game... However, it can very well be that Alber and Raf won't be taking any new responsibilities for now. Why would Alber go to Dior if his speech at the ceremony highlights what he would be eventually doing at a house like Dior...at even quicker pace than at Lanvin!

what if Raf is going to Lanvin?


I hope Alber returns soon, sad to see him go. Lanvin hasn't been exciting for a few seasons now, so maybe he needed a shake up.

Alber at Dior would be a dream
