Albert Elbaz played “an endless game of contrasts” for Lanvin AW15. The show opened with streamlined, equestrian-inspired silhouettes: Matador-style cropped jackets, tasselled trousers and knee boots were firmly on the fashion agenda, followed by flowing midi dresses anchored with leather harnesses and python accents. Gradually adding layers of texture through tassel belts and blanket coats, a parade of nomadic haute hippie offerings followed, with rich Berber fringing, wrapped tapestry skirts, shaggy fur gilets and glossy patchwork shearling taking centre stage. The show closed with an evening-ready edit of louche velvet pieces that incorporated elements from each of the myriad looks before it.
Who we saw: Kim Kardashian, Jared Leto and Anna Wintour.
What they wore: Newly-blonde locks for both Kardashain and Leto, and a glossy Lanvin calfhair coat for Wintour.
In a nutshell: Equestrian meets Berber princess.
