Alber Elbaz's Twenties-inspired collection was dark, mysterious and über-glam...
Alber Elbaz took Lanvin in a dark direction for AW14, sending models straight down the catwalk into the subversive underworld of the 1920s. Creating a new wave of elegance with after-dark looks in luxurious silk satin and plush, feather fringing, bias-cut seams gave way to a floor-sweeping vintage silhouette, while hats and gloves offered an opulent nod to a bygone era. Taking hemlines higher as the show continued, texture played a vital part with delicate beading and lavish fur in all its incarnations – stoles, coats, gilets and lapels.
