Alber Elbaz gets its. I mean he really fucking gets it. His 2011 Spring collection for Lanvin is it. Every single piece that came down the runway was beautiful, sensible, totally wearable and completely breathtaking. These are the clothes that I want to wear.
Elbaz is quoted as saying, "The whole idea of fashion is to make women fly and to make women beautiful and to make women glamourous." With this collection he achieves just that. The muted colors and strong lines make a resounding statement about power and constraint. These pieces are empowering and would make any woman stand up straighter and strut a little more deliberately. However, the best part is that with all of this beauty and empowerment, comfort is not forfeited. The pieces are wearable and sensible-note the flats the models are wearing. With this collection, Elbaz proves that you can have it all. [photos from WWD]
