Alber elbaz invites us at the end of the day to an imaginary journey. trousers highlighted with red bands on the side, tucked into riding boots, little short spencers, or a split skirt, the designer reinterprets an urban wardrobe, with great desirability.a number of details borrowed from the original country of the designer, morocco, punctuate the clothes: belts with pompoms, trimmings, fringing, berber stripes, capes, caftans, and asymmetrical leather shirt fronts...a sensation of comfort and warmth emanates from a skirt rolled on the hips, a long coat, or gilets in goat or sheepskin. the chiffon dresses embroidered in gold illuminate the beaux-arts and the embroideries that adorn the last looks highlight the couture work of the ateliers of this house in the honour of the jeanne lanvin exhibition opening this week at the palais galliera. in preparing for this retrospective, alber elbaz is brought back to his moroccan origins that he distils with brilliance in this lanvin collection that is at the same time opulent and pure, raw and precise, graphic and ethnic...a play of contrasts, with the designer enjoys with talent. to note: on the front row a blonde kim kardashian, escorted by kanye west and the presence of the american designer, donna karan. interview:alber elbaz: i thought that it would be good for today that i go back or return to my roots, i did a little bit like an imaginary journey to morocco, to its stories, emotions, smells, perfumes, gold and it’s never literal, i didn’t want to erase the history, but i wanted to just change it a bit for the woman of today, almost like a nomadic woman.i started with the caftans, i took all the trimmings, and i started to put them on the black trousers, on the jackets, on the urban coats, and i saw a result that was quite surprising, because it’s more like the uniforms of an orchestra rather than soldier uniforms, and after i took wedding dresses, not the white dresses, but the dresses from the night before the wedding, and all the history of the gold jewellery, with these bracelets which of course come from the family.donna karan: that was so purely from his soul, you know his real expression as an artist, as a designer, as an artist, as a creator, and he showed his love and his passion, and he let it all go, and that was wonderful. music from the show
