Lanvin Spring 2010"I don’t think women in the past were as emotionally strong as they are today. It was very important for them to look beautiful. Now they want to be smart, active. So fashion is not enough anymore. "- Alber Elbaz, 2007
Mr. Elbaz is someone for whom, genius and innovation arises from hardship; recessions; consumer downturn. He gets better and better, wherein small improvements in design show growth and love and thought and dynamism, not a 'back to the drawing board approach.' He is a dancer, not an acrobat. Though he'd probably laugh if he read that.
The above are my picks from the collection, but you are doing a grave disservice if you do not look for yourself.
