I kind of like it. It's also great to see something a little different from Lanvin.
alber elbaz is hitting the sweet spot this past year. his pre-fall collection and resort collection shows that he has this fun/party side that we so rarely see in the ready-to-wear. and i am loving it. that fur is amazing and that leopard ensemble -- is it a one piece? -- is at once completely outrageous and ridiculously chic.
Exactly right and I'm glad to see his experimentation with more animal patterns. The real stand-out outfits have to be the first 3. Charming!
Hideous. It looks like a bad interpretation of Dolce&Gabbana's aesthetic mixed with Roberto Cavalli mixed with a bygone Russian peasantry.
I'm sorry but if this is what a step out of Alber's comfort zone looks like, then I think he should step right back in. And fast. Before he diffuses this for Fall 2010.
Wow, that is something I would never expect to see in a thread marked Lanvin I'm actually the last person to like animal prints but Alber makes them look so good, and dare I say that, really chic! I'm so glad he took such challenge, it's not that easy to make animal prints loveable but again Alber is capable of doing it
I don't like it.
First look is great, but it goes down the hill from there, the last one is hideous. Head to to animal print? Nonononono!
Ehh pre-fall. At least I didn't fall asleep looking at this one. I like how it's presented and the first three looks, although I'm not a fan of animal print much.
Wow so nice to see Lanvin loosen up a bit. Though I hate the poses and think they distract from the clothes.
Yeah, looks a bit more interesting than spring, but the head to toe leopard print ensembles are horrendous.
nice, not a huge fan of animal print though
absolutely wonderful !!! i love the ambiance
Hideous, I never thought I'd call anything made by Alber hideous
Somehow it looks so fresh to me. Even the head-to-toe animal print looks nice. Or kind of. The one shoulder dress is a total hit! Would love to see it paired with some killing red heels.
see when i was complaining back in october that he had done a beautiful but rather repetitive or un-innovative collection for summer, this is what i was talking about...
alber can do both beautiful and introduce new elements to his work. it doesnt have to be groundbreaking, but how beautiful is that fuller skirt on the third look? how charming the styling. the whole thing is pure Lanvin, and rather new Lanvin!
I don't dig animal prints, but the designs look great. The collection itself looks promising.
I really only like the texture overload of the first two looks. The animal prints are cute, but not doing it for me.
I think it's not new, you just have to remember SS05 (50's slihouette), FW04 (A-coats) and FW06 (smoking). Besides he used leopard prints in his FW03 collection (which didn't look so cheap).
^a leopard print fur coat is not quite the same thing as using leopard in this way. this is much more carefree with respect to these animal patterns. great reference though!
