First, let me preface this by saying I LOVE LANVIN. However, when I came across these photos from the Cruise 2010 runway show I really had to say “uh…WTF?” The individual pieces that Alber Elbaz created are pretty fab. But, this whole “accidental tourist” look (as WWD dubbed it) that he sent down the runway just looks like you threw all the shit from your grandmother’s suitcase onto yourself at once. And then you went down the hall to hit up her friends and put all their shit on as well. Now, I realize that you gotta step it up for the runway. But, there are people that will see these photos and start taking this to the streets thinking to themselves “I saw Lanvin rock this on the runway.” To those lost souls — let us say: rockin the glitter pants is hardcore enough. Seriously. Enough.
