Lanvin Fashion House chose to play subtle and feminine this season adding just a pop of bright color in a few outfits during the Paris Fashion Week, Feb. 28.
The models were sent down the runway dressed in chic yet playful ensembles that were designed in shades of black, off white and shimmery golden and grey.
Designer Alber Elbaz played around with a lot of ruffles and elegant cuts this season combining them with figure hugging dresses as well as those that flared out below the hip. The designer stuck to basic and simple lines. But the cuts and angles lent a sense of playful femininity to it.
Elbaz's had a lot of black dresses adorned with lace and intricate detailing that turned them into stunning evening wear pieces. The models also showcased pantsuits, skirts and coats in subtle colors perfectly complimenting the creation.
Lanvin also established that color is not the only important component of a stylish outfit. A model strutted down the ramp dressed in a grey skirt suit and a much lighter shade of a cape style coat. While the combination would normally be branded as boring, the only words that that popped in our head was "subtle chic."
Another item that really caught our eye was a slimming black skirt paired with a black full sleeved turtle neck and finished with a grey jacket clinched at the waist with a belt to give it a peplum type look.
The collection also featured rugged leather over coats, formal tweed blazers and coats that garnered appreciation.
A few of Lanvin's dresses added color to the runway as opposed to the daintiness other ensemble sported. Models showcased dresses in maroon, blue, shimmery gold and green.
While the outfits were modest, Lanvin's accessories were playful and flirty. Models wore chunky belts and necklaces that said, "Help," "Hot," "Love," and "Cool."
Elbaz is said to have paid more attention to fashion after showcasing his spring collection last year. "I felt this change of direction, a kind of crazy [mood] in Paris that I didn't see before," he told WWD.
