Still warm enough for open toe shoes and it’s Friday – Double Whammy of Awesomeness!
Victoria Beckham opened her first store yesterday in London and it is an environment of beauty worthy of her luxe line. The architecture, the lighting, the cascading videos walls showcasing her fashion shows, the clean lines throughout and the simplicity of the clothing presentation is jaw droopingly perfect.
Personallly, I cannot wait to experience 36 Dover Street in London in person.
Alber Elbez is a genius in clothing design and in understanding women. He prepared for Lanvin’s Paris Fashion Week show by sitting in cafes watching women walk by, busy in their lives. Alber realized that to women fashion is “all or nothing”, and the collection reflected this brilliantly.
Elbez also brought back a few of his favorite models to walk the show to help celebrateLanvin’s 125th anniversary. He stated that the more experienced models (aka older) didn’t need nearly as much makeup as the younger crew.
Alber weighs the success of a dress by whether or not he can see the model’s face. reversecommuter LOVES this! You know that moment when you put on an outfit and you feel invincible, gorgeous and positive all at once?
So does Alber Elbez and that is how he creates. Tremendous reason to increase my obsession with Lanvin.
Live this weekend like you don’t have children that wake up at 6am. Pop the champs with wild abandon that definitely does not reflect all the chauffeuring, sports activities, playdates and chores that await you the next morning!
