Lanvin’s fall 2011 collection had creative director Alber Elbaz taking the label to new heights with his feminine silhouettes which ranged from sculptural to slouchy in shape. Accessories included wide brim hats which covered the models’ faces, bedazzled belts and chunky necklaces made of metal hardware. With the wide brim hats and dramatic capes–the Lanvin woman seemed elegant yet mysterious for the autumn season.

The juxtaposition of hard and soft is the main foundation for Lanvin’s spring 2011 showing. Sleek silhouettes and asymmetry come together with lightweight materials and armor-like structures for a mix of the feminine and masculine. A most muted color palette of soft grays, neutrals and blues offset a few bright spots of red and yellow–marking the collection as quiet yet powerful.
