Ahh, the collection makes more sense now. I love the idea that Alber had behind doing this, but it's not something that many are going to immediately grasp. Nonetheless, I thought the collection was wonderful in that there was so many things too choose from. It was whimsical in some looks, strong and powerful in others, but feminine and sweet in others.

The accessory detail does overwhelm some of the pieces, especially the dresses. I appreciate the playfull/prom aspect Albert tried to bring to this collection but the oversize tees didn't look flattering on some of the models.

Seems to be a very unpopular opinion but I absolutely loved this.

Not in love but I liked the whole collection (ok not the whole some looks are very like others ) nothing to wow! but they are chic and liked the cuts and styling.

This is absolutely marvellous.

I agree the jewellery and one or two pieces are questionable but this is so essentially Alber's Lanvin, something I've been waiting to see for months now.

That Happy necklace may be tacky, but this show actually does make me very happy.

Okay. After seeing the runway video, I can see why it's getting rave reviews. The way the fabric moves as the models walk is amazing. All the mixing and styling really works in motion. It's funny how most of the reviews on TFS have been mostly negative, based on online images, but the people at the show, watching it live, are going mad for it.

^ Really? He did never quit using colours, actually at least third of all his collections (each) are very colorful (check the second half of the S/S 13, for example).
I always prefered his dark side though.

just wanted to note what may be a double entendre ... Happy is also a Lanvin bag style name. (but as far as i know Help is not :p)

It does change it all when you see the video. Really enjoyable to watch.

I like that he isn't guilty of not trying to be 'modern' at any cost. There is some agressiveness in this collection that is very cool. I kind of see some of the never over polished Miuccia in Alber, maybe in a parisian fashion.

agree that after watching the better part of the runway show, i couldn't identify anything disjointed about it. very elegant, & except for the zipped leather coat, everything moving so beautifully was the primary thing that stood out to me.
