Alber Elbaz calls it "new minimalist". Unveiling his new ready-to-wear spring/summer 2010 collection, the head designer at Lanvin (which celebrates its 120th anniversary this year) weaves a new success story. More than ever, Alber Elbaz has shown a respect and understanding of the female shape.
Asymmetric dresses and precious fabrics are in abundance. Thin belts emphasise the waist while delicate bow details adorn the shoulders.
Accessories include large bracelets, elaborate necklaces, oversized earrings and mini handbags that repeat the bow theme.
