SS11 hasn’t been very fulfilling. Even Balmain and Balenciaga — which offer some entertainment usually— I’ve felt deprived. Thank god for Alber Elbaz and Lanvin, the perfect, sumptuous and oh-so-satisfying combo of style and substance. Not Elbaz’s best collection, I’ll admit. His other shows have literally stolen my breath! But far more palatable than the other shows thus far… more on this show later!!
