Alber Elbaz is celebrating his tenth year at Lanvin with the release of the “Happy” Les 10 Ans capsule collection.
There’s no risk of forgetting the years of Elbaz’s tenure, because the range features 10 versions of Lanvin’s iconic Happy bag, 10 pairs of shoes, and 10 dramatic pieces of jewelry. The items are grouped in trios, with a purse, piece of jewelry, and pair of shoes all united by a common theme. With themes including animal print, tulle and pearls, crocodile patchwork, and diamante heart, the line offers many distinct looks. You could wear them altogether as Lanvin intends, but I think they’d look much more chic as single statement pieces.
An official description of the line states that it looks to express “the modernity of the house’s emblematic styles and a certain couture-style refinement in the fabrics, colors, and finishing details.” Do you think it’s achieved all that?
If you’ve fallen for the line, you may want to start saving now. Lanvin goodies never come cheaply, and with prices for the “Happy” Les 10 Ans starting at ₤340 this collection is no exception. You’ll find them at Lanvin’s flagship stores around the world and its online boutique this September.
