A diverse group — Madame Grès, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Princes Harry and William — were Alber Elbaz's inspirations for the Lanvin Resort 2012 collection. There were softly draped dresses and jumpsuits in shades of citrine, taupe, and ivory; marching jackets in tweed and leather; and plenty of ruffles and fringe to go around. Accessories included frayed tweed fedoras, silky turbans, oversized beads (layered on in multiple) and paneled, chain-strap bags.
But that's not all. The outing also marked Lanvin's first foray into children's wear and featured 15 looks for girls ages 4-10. The festive collection of mini-me styles included a voluminous crimson number, a smart taffeta trench, and, a velvety pinafore in Prussian blue.
