Lanvin Fall 2014–After last season’s focus on metallic, the fall-winter 2014 collection from Lanvin saw Alber Elbaz deliver an outing of embellishments and volume-filled pieces. The opening looks started on a dramatic note–models walked in fringe-adorned hats paired with ruffled skirts and frayed tweeds. Then, the show progressed into a more streamlined silhouette with pleated skirts, leather trenches and roomy dresses decorated in bugle beads. The season calls for furs, and the Lanvin woman has plenty of choices in that department in the form of bulky coats, luxurious stoles and trims. Fall ends on a quiet note with relaxed fitting dresses adorned in color-blocked fringe.

Steven Meisel captured the Belarusian model for the campaign photos. Even today, the brand continues with its creative vision with Lanvin’s current, spring-summer 2014 campaign.
Lanvin Spring/Summer 2014 Campaign–Lanvin enlists Steven Meisel once more to work on their advertising campaign, capturing an intriguing discussion for spring/summer 2014.

On her feet, the Lanvin woman has an array of options such as practical flats or the more glamorous-minded option of sexy pumps.
