I still adore the S/S 08 Lanvin dresses (below). The ad campaigns for Lanvin that season are among the best I have ever seen. Un fucking real. A beautiful collection never loses its magic. By the way, the rumors about Alber replacing Karl at Chanel always upset me because I fervently believe Lanvin has, under Alber's direction, become a stronger label than Chanel. Karl is an extremely talented designer, but he is truly spread too thin between all of the lines he designs to create a single, strong collection. And he might just take his success for granted after such a long career? It's understandable, but I'm team Elbaz 100%.
