This is one confused collection. So many things happening at the same time

This is the dark, kitsch tackiness that only Lanvin can pull off. The accessories are everything!

Very hit and miss. Some of the fur looks tacky. The Jewellery is annoying.
I love the last dress though and l like the flat shoes for a change.

There are a few nice pieces here and there, but no. What happened here? I am equal parts disturbed and amused about the bug dress.

We all know there are some gorgeous, wonderful clothes to be had here but sadly they get lost in the big gigantic mess that is this collection. One of Alber's worst to be certain, and he certainly could change up the staging and lighting for once.

It's rather messy. I prefer a cleaner Lanvin. I do love the third dress, though. And some other pieces.

And yes, the jewelry is so tacky which is jarring considering how gorgeous the accessories usually are.

Some very nice pieces and some horrible ones, so I'm really undecided. I definitely can't say I like it as a whole.

The simpler pieces are so great and easy. They just feel and look fresh next to the typical Lanvin woman.

This is all over the place! It's like he rehashed all his previous collections and threw em into one. I have to say there are very nice pieces (like the fur and the coats) but some very ugly looks here (the embellishments on the dresses, the pajama-lookin things, the jewelry). Very messy and a rare miss from Alber.

What a mess and a sea of contradictions & confusion. Alber's at his worst. He rarely misses the mark.

I think this is the first time I've ever genuinely been disappointed by Lanvin. There are still a few really beautiful pieces that would be a dream to own, but the overall collection is not of the same quality I would normally expect.

Is it Alber's best? No. But I still like it, but I'm a ride or die Lanvin loyalist soo...
