Lanvin Opens First London Store | Designer Alber Elbaz Entertains

Posted on: Mar 27

When I think of an artistic director, a budding comedian isn't exactly what comes to my mind. However, Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz apparently had a store opening crowd "in stitches" as he entertained with his quick wit and humor.

The designer for the long-running French design house was in London to celebrate the opening of a new women's store, surprisingly Lanvin's first for the city. Elbaz provided a show-and-tell presentation for the spring collection splashed with pithy side comments such as:

I dress women. I don’t undress them — unfortunately. My mother would be happy if I did.”

Among the amused crowd were some of the designer's fellow fashion lovers such as models Anouck Lepere and Yasmin LeBon and fashion photographer Juergen Teller. Though he might have a knack for stand-up comedy, thankfully Elbaz will continue his divine work with Lanvin as the company continues to expand.
