Pre-Spring Collections 2007
I read that several pre-spring collections were shown during haute couture week in paris, and found this article on wwd, unfortunately though i don't have full access.....i'd appreciate if someone could post the full story, and some pics, maybe? thanks a bunch!

Published: Monday, July 10, 2006

A Touch of Flou - Lanvin, Rochas, Azzaro, Martin Margiela, Anne Valerie Hash
Breezy looks done with a deft touch and a bit of glamour lead the way for pre-spring and spring.

Lanvin: "I'm not Nelson Mandela's boyfriend." That was Alber Elbaz attempting to be witty in explaining his casting of all-black models for a mini show of Lanvin's pre-spring collection. Keeping up the repartee throughout, Elbaz showed a wonderful range of deceptively simple, featherweight dresses, jackets and coats. He cut halter dresses long and elegantly breezy in washed-soft fabrics, and played with tiered dresses and skirts, their ruffles falling along a spiral curve. He described the collection as "layers of nothing." But his chic, clever clothes spoke for themselves.

That is the full story on the part of Lanvin.

Interesting that he used all Black models. So far the collection doesn't look African themed, which also makes it an interesting choice on Mr. Albaz's part. I look foward to seeing the entire collection.

i have a hunch this pre-spring collection may be stronger than what we've seen for the past few seasons.

I would really love to see some more pictures. I adore this idea of "layers of nothing"
