Buying a Lanvin piece is like acquiring a heirloom; even the label is recognisable, it has the vantaggio of never going out of style. Alber knows what women want from clothes: elegance, comfort and that they make you feel amazing. What else could we ask for to a dress?
Here are some of his honest and precious fashion advice (from Grazia UK).
ON CREDIT CRUNCH DRESSING:
"When people worring they should be wearing only jeans and a top from Zara in these difficult times, I say "non-sense". After a rose, and maybe chocolate, a pink dress is the only thing guarantee to make us happy".
ON DRESSING FOR YOURSELF:
"I know some women who dress to upset other women or to kiss a man. I think a woman looks best when she dresses for herself".
ON MIXING THINGS UP:
"I don't like accessories that match.Life is one big accident; I like it when style reflects that".
ON THE POWER OF A LANVIN DRESS:
"I have a friend who says that everytime she wears a Lanvin dress, a man falls in love with her. I say that next time I'd like her to fall in love: she needs to be more in control".
ON HIS DESIGN PHILOSOPHY:
"I look at French fashion like a chef might look at food: taking cream out and replacing with olive oil to make it lighter. So I take the corseting and stiffness out to make the clothes comfortable. To me, comfort is everything".
