Lanvin: Master of Bias


An old favourite of mine – would simply love to see this exhibition, I love the way it is described in this little vid.

Alber Elbaz is very emotional, but whilst describing the dresses the white satin one for me could be worn today totally timeless, classic and elegant chic.

Today the first Paris exhibition devoted to Jeanne Lanvin, founder of the oldest French fashion house still in business, opens at the Palais Galliera. Curated by Olivier Saillard in collaboration with Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz, the show explores the breadth of Jeanne Lanvin’s artistry as a designer. Style.com’s Tim Blanks had the opportunity to preview the show with Elbaz to discuss the importance of her work, from the house’s iconic mother/daughter logo to Jeanne Lanvin’s final piece—a simple dress with “wings.” Elbaz explains that for years Jeanne Lanvin didn’t get the recognition she deserved because her pieces whispered, they didn’t shout. “But when you go deeper…,” he says. Take a deeper look with Elbaz and Blanks here.

Jeanne Lanvin is on display at the Palais Galliera through August 23.​

Urban v. Haute Couture


Interesting Street Style from Asia ht.tp://www.streetstylenews.com/res/navbar10/navbarb.php?ac=to&ul=http://on.wsj.com/1fYKHzs&sn=WSJ%20SceneStyle%20Asia  the men seem to do it well, see below kinda cute.  As for Paris Fashion week, the designers seem to be showing a lot of space age metallic cloth and all in ones, that foil coated look is tricky to wear – I think the east seem to have a very cool take on relaxed urban future and ladylike street style that works in the every day.  The leather jackets and garments do futuristic better for me that lame and metallic fibres – its much more haute couture than urban.
