I was prepared to write about the Charlotte Olympia Perfume Bottle Clutch all by itself – the design is a continuation of designer Charlotte Dellal’s strong history of whimsy and irreverence – but then I got to thinking that the concept sounded familiar.
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.
Now that the dust has settled around the various global fashion weeks and we know what to expect from the most important collections for Spring 2013, well…what can we expect? The handbag trends weren’t quite as clear for the upcoming season as they have been in the recent past, but if nothing else, you should count on things getting a little more modern.
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.
