This week, celebs are dividing their time between St.Tropez, the West End, New York music festivals and the never-ending summer movie press circuit. And Craig’s, of course. (Like clockwork, you can always count on half a dozen Real Housewives to sup at Craig’s on any given week.) What are A-listers (and debatable B through D-listers) carrying at these high profile outings all over the globe, you ask?
Here’s Diane Kruger leaving the gym in West Hollywood. She’s the first celeb that we’ve seen carrying the new Lanvin Sugar Bag, which is brand new for Fall 2014 and a big push for a brand that’s hasn’t really done exceptionally well in the handbag department lately.
Last week on our sister site TalkShoes, we discussed a pair of Lanvin men’s sneakers that will likely skew a little bit feminine for even open-minded male fashion lovers. In writing the post, it was interesting to examine all the deep-seated assumptions we have about almost every element of fashion and how they relate to perceptions of gender and sexuality.
Here’s Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo, carrying a Lanvin Trilogy Tote in LA. This pebbled Italian leather bag is a fabulous choice for summer – big enough for eight different pairs of sunnies, a giant bottle of sunscreen, a few beach reads, plus all your usual accessories.
Here’s one of my top five starlets-who-can-do-no-wrong, Emma Stone, drenched almost head-to-toe in Lanvin at the LA premiere of her new flick Gangster Squad. Her garnet strapless dress and statement necklace are both Lanvin, and you’ll notice she’s carrying the Lanvin Brass Trim Box Clutch.
It’s been a decade since Alber Elbaz joined Lanvin, and since his start the brand has taken a turn for the better. More people recognize Lanvin and consider it a brilliant collection, myself included. To celebrate his first ten years, Lanvin is launching a celebratory capsule collection.
I stalk Net-a-Porter’s new arrivals page like a crazy person. Everyone at PurseBlog does – every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning, NAP unleashes upon us a lovely assortment of the best luxury goods you can find on the Internet, ranging from basics like cashmere sweaters to not-so-basics like the Lanvin Colorblock Goat Hair Doctor’s Bag, above.
Few brands evoke the level of love in the fashion community like Lanvin. Between the feminine, flattering and wearable styles to the adorable and completely obsession-worthy creative director, Alber Elbaz, whatever Lanvin sells, we want.
That said, at prices in the four figures for Lanvin ready-to-wear…it can be awfully intimidating to our bank accounts. What’s a fashion-obsessed girl to do?
Enter, THE OUTNET. Starting today, THE OUTNET is offering a huge selection of Lanvin ready-to-wear and accessories at up to 70% off. The prices aren’t cheap, but they are a whole lot more palatable then full price.
Lots of designers talk about their “woman” in abstract terms. The Marc Jacobs woman, for example, enjoys a bit of humor in her wardrobe. The Rick Owens woman wears a lot of black leather and will only date those who subscribe to a similar aesthetic.
