And here's the true testament to Alber's talent - even when he's doing safe, wearable clothes, he can still dazzle with his embellishing, structuring, and draping and create one of the best collections of the season.

Now, isn't that amazing?

I'd never think a day would come for me to say this, but I'm just so damn tired of Lanvin. Putting aside we've been seeing this for seasons now, it doesn't have any lightness, nonchalance and just effortless feeling Alber's collections used to have.

Speaking of which, I would say I love the venue, but they had to build the high catwalk with this awful floor.

Consistency always pop up when I see his collection. It demonstrate how clear his vision is for the house of Lanvin. Like Karl and Chanel, I hope this is one marriage that will last till death parts them. Always ends with a high note and something new. Eat your words to those who are quick to judge!!

Alber, you deserve some macaroons now! Eat away!

Perfection is indeed the right word. So elegant, classy, and Lanvin. Cannot understand that people will find this ugly.

This looks very Lanvin. So many house signatures that Alber continues to improve on. I'm loving the obi style belts and dying for the Arpege bottle clutches.

Super wearable collection with a lot of modernity, strength and power and there´s a still touch of coolness, sexiness, elegance. Very structure collection but in a very good way.

Lanvin can NEVER do something and I don't end up LOVING it, one of the best collections this season.

Alber Elbaz is reknowned as an excellent exponent of moulage draping but I'm afraid I have to question, again, his prowess as a tailor. Observe the seams in the detail shots @ posts # 17 and 19. More often than not the seams are not right. They are replete with lumps and bumps with the consequence that many pieces do not sit right on the body. This type of poor seamwork marks out a graduate designer who's technique is lacking but surely at a house such as Lanvin this must be unacceptable?

^I think the 'irregularities' and the 'imperfections' are sometimes the beauty of Lanvin, in an acceptable manner of course, as you may see it they seem unprofessional, I don't.

I thought his monochromatic vision is as ever fantastic, the precision of the cut this season is razor sharp which seems an irregularity for Alber to execute, his somewhat of a disheveled or raw edges which he turns out many seasons are replaced by something that one could cut oneself on.

The girls exited the catwalk as almost China Dolls in battle, some pieces had an illusion and a sensual factor to them, the accessories however maintained to be one of the aspects of the show that kept my attention, as always they are intricate and interesting.

i think he went into a safe spot this season, yet it still looks very well done with still his signature elements, patterns... i don't think is my favourite of what he has done, but i do love what i see
