Paris Fashion Week: Lanvin Fall/Winter 2011 Collection

Written by . Posted in Blog, Events, Fashion Shows, Features.

With nothing like it seen since the Paris Fashion Week F/W 2011 started, at the  Lanvin show, there was a Willow tree just behind the runway. Alber Elbaz spoke  about the willow tree backstage saying – “A willow is for emotion, femininity and comfortable roots, “I wanted to start with something very clear and simple: three pieces of coats and suits — traditional elegance again.” With the first model stepping out from behind the darkness of the tree into the light of the catwalk wearing the traditional witches hat (I guess they are synonymous Willow Tree, Witches Hat) , the couple of models that followed after that took a leaf from the first model’s books also wearing witches’ hats, all in boxy silhouettes with hints of gold hardware on their pieces , smart and very business-womany. And voilà! there was an outburst of colours which followed swiftly with models in bright coloured numbers a la delicate and very feminine fabrics. Modern Silk, puff sleeves, bubble skirts, off shouldered pieces { Who would have thought those were still here? } were also in sight. Alber didn’t fail to use one of his favorite models on the runway - Ajak Deng and to our surprise Nana Keita was also following the lead of the sashay!
