Vika Gazinskaya and Renata Litvinova at the Lanvin fashion show fall-winter 2016
In late October it became known that the post of creative Director of Lanvin left who held it for 14 years, Alber Elbaz. Almost six months later the emotions subsided, and now is the time to evaluate a new collection of the brand, created by a team of designers at Home without a creative Director. And, in fairness, it should be noted, is far from weak, however, based entirely on what “was” at the very Elbaz.
Branded flounces and ruffles continue on the catwalk – the designers put them vertically, horizontally and diagonally and are exploited in the form of ruffles, cuffs, bass, tops-jellyfish and collars. The authors put on a lace blouse, a flying dress with a satin gloss in the palette of peach, emerald, sea foam and lilac and quilted jackets of stiff brocade in the style of the 80’s is definitely out of the closet heroines of the series “Dynasty”. Also in the arena – embroidered with precious stones, leather jackets, fur scarves, velvet pantaloons and lacquer coats on a naked body, lavished with jewelry.
However, to move forward, the team does not get rid of a set of design techniques ex-leader and change the location of the show and lighting. To remain competitive, the House needs a new captain, but there’s no news or even rumors on this subject have not yet been. Meanwhile, creative Director of fashion Houses continue to leave posts: care Hedi Slimane of Saint Laurent is so far only gossip, but today will be the first Dior collection by RAF Simons without, also left their “tron” last fall. We are looking forward to it.
