This is stunning.....sleek and polished and as always spectacular accessories.
Alber stays true to his vision for this brand in turning out unflashy wearable clothes. The highlight of Paris so far and although flower prints can become quite mundane....when done well they work a treat. Love this..........

now fashion

I think this is my favorite A/W 11 collection so far!

He never disappoints Everything looks so desirable, its glorious.
Of course this is not his best collection, but I really love the paradoxe of it. On the one hand : there's this take over the masculine wardrobe which leads to an explosion of Feminity. And on the other hand, the almost depressing austerity of the beginning which leads to an explosion of frivolity and colors. " After a hurricane comes the rainbow..."
And last but not least the accessories : OMG

It's nice, as always. Alber knows how to make a beautiful collection, but the magic of Lanvin has been lost on me for a while now.

I'm super excited and in love with the cutting and drapery of the clothes, one of the master in the fashion nowadays. as beautiful as always, even if he's repeating some of the silhoutte, You will love the collection. I'm turely hoping he will stay in Lanvin.

Couldn't agree more. I haven't felt the spark in this collection nor last seasons which is quite disappointing.

so great to see him making a departure...
this is actually quite reminiscent of his work at YSL...

and it's great that he has included more daywear than usual...
his evening party looks are always fun and flirty...
but every woman needs some real clothes ...
and these are great...

the accessories really rock my world...

I am going to go against the grain again here. He is showing his limitations in outerwear and construction in this collection - he might be an expert with certain types of glamorous dresses, silks, colours, textures, poufs, etc. but the coats and jackets are awkward, as are the dresses that are constructed of stiffer materials. It's a bit of a cop-out to attach an elaborate brooch to decorate an otherwise unappealing dress.

The cuts and the accessories are great. Of course the hats too, which do add a kind of witchy feel with that tree in the background. But my favorite pieces were the 4 black & white rose pieces, the way they flit and fade the motif, in succession - so beautiful:
