Lanvin Spring 2014: A Parade of Lamé



Remember those Jil Sander lunch bags? Alber Elbaz is one-upping Sander with high-shine takes on trash bags this season at Lanvin. That's right, trash bag handbag doppelgangers were all over the brand's Spring 2014 runway and they made for chic accompaniments to the high-shine, attention-grabbing fashions.

While there were some matte pieces, the overall collection was heavy on metallics, making it a unique lineup for the season. The designer stayed true to his signatures, however, churning out a slew of cocktail party dresses with sculpted, ruffled, corseted, knotted and bow details. Also in the lamé mix, sharp suiting and jumpers for a glitteringly fun collection.
