Lanvin SS 2011

Once again, Alber Elbaz show went magnificent, full of Lanvin classics; the master mix of flowy and architectural structure, the same strong and powerful woman, so sensual, so sexy was so present; yet on the other hand, there’s an unsexed one, and a certain grey worker halo from 40´s.

Una vez más , la colección de Alber Elbaz para Lanvin estuvo fantástica, llena de clásicos; Su maestría en la combinación de fluidez con estructuras arquitectónicas, así como la misma mujer: Fuerte, sensual y sexual estuvo muy presente; por otro lado un ente asexuado que nos remonta a una trabajadora gris de los años 40´s.

I loved the effect of the wonderful trench coats, on crinkled fabrics with languid silhouette, almost like plasticized.

Los trench fluidos son de las cosas que más me han gustado, me encanta ese efecto, un poco abullonado con silueta lánguida, casi como plastificados.
LANVIN SS 2011 flowy trench coats

It seems like a very subtle and light patent leather. We´ve seen those trenches on past seasons, also his “shinny blacks”, like the not well received velvet Oscar gown wore by Tilda Swinton. Let’s be honest; for people loving, living and eating fashion, the dress was just perfect. Joan Rivers and al her hideous crew full of cheap fashion criticism, said it was like a corpse in a black trash bag. They´re the kind of people will be clamoring for one of the tacky Zac Posen´s last season dresses on Taylor Momsen, or Miley Cyrus on the red carpet.

Se ve como si fuese una versión muy muy ligera del charol, los hemos visto en pasadas colecciones, incluso sus "negros brillantes" como el no bien recibido vestido para la alfombra roja de los Oscar, por supuesto con Tilda como protagonista. Y seamos honestos, la gente que nos encanta la moda lo adoramos; Joan Rivers y su asqueroso equipo de crítica de moda barata lo tachaban de no ser mas que un muerto en una bolsa de basura, es el tipo de gente a la que le encantaría ver a Taylor Momsen o Miley Cyrus con uno de los peculiares vestidos de la ultima temporada de Zac Posen sobre la alfombra roja.

Another of my favorite moments: The long dresses, perfectly combined with… air? resulting into showstopper numbers, Like this one, hot pink? (I don’t know if it is hot pink, lets just say … pink pink) Those dresses have been seen on past shows (2008 pic down bellow), and it must be said they are always such a success; just have to look at Karlie’s expression: I’m sasha fierce on this number.

Otro de mis momentos favoritos: Los vestidos largos, en perfecta sinfonía con… aire? Resultando prendas con efectos sorprendentes al caminar, como este, ¿rosa fosforito? Dejémoslo en rosa rosa.
Éstos vestidos los hemos visto en temporadas pasadas (P-V 2008) y debo decir, que siempre son un éxito rotundo, ¡tan solo hay que ver la cara de Karlie!
Lanvin SS 2011 and Lanvin spring 2008

Lanvin SS 2011

The half half dresses! These are my favorite! Looking at these, you can notice the translation of the wry-witty Albert’s personality into clothes, his most striped-out signature for Lanvin. Alber is like a kid, he loves being on his atelier playing with fabric, just have to mention the nude+pale pink dress from past spring, 18 feet of perfectly draped organza with such a studied dishevelment and disarrayed at the same time : What kind of designer are you? -Asked Albert’s mother to her son, watching him twirling and tucking here and there the fabric with no script- He then just said: I don’t know.

Los vestidos mitad-mitad, ¡éstos si que son mis favoritos! Aquí puedes ver el ingenio y la ironía que le aporta Alber a Lanvin, es su sello más personal para la marca, y es que, es como un niño jugando en su taller con los metros y metros de tela; cabe mencionar el vestido de la primavera del 2010 con cinco metros de organza perfectamente acomodada, y con un descuido mas que estudiado y un alboroto más que calculado: ¿Qué tipo de diseñador eres tú? Le preguntaba la madre de Alber a su hijo, viéndolo torcer, meter por aquí y por allá los lienzos de tela, y el simplemente contestó: -No lo sé-
From an i-D april 2010 interview.

He is just a master.
Simplemente un maestro.

And here she is: The glamour in women shape, the final section from the show, starring the most decadent and frivolous numbers; those looks that shivers down my spine. Yet, since this collection is way minimal -yes, a lot more- not very allured, I must say it didn’t lost its glow. Karmen Pedaru, Frida Gustavson and Nimue Smith among others were the chosen to rock those mini embroidery dresses that the word mini is just for length; since they would be from 5000 euros onwards.

Y aquí la tenemos, la versión más glamurosa del sexo femenino, la sección final de la pasarela, presentando los números más frívolos y decadentes, esos que te ponen los pelos de punta, y aunque esta colección ha tenido muchos tintes minimalistas -Si, ha sido muchísimo más sencilla que las anteriores; sin tanto allure- aunque debo decir que no perdió en lo absoluto su brillo. Karmen Pedaru, Frida Gustavson y Nimue Smith entre otras, han sido las encargadas de llevar estos mini vestidos bordados, que lo único que tienen de mini es el largo, que seguro andan de 5000 euros en adelante.

I went raving when the model group including Ajak Deng closed the show: The picture is beautiful. It´s an honor to close such a caliber show.
Me volví loco cuando el grupo de modelos incluida Ajak Deng cerró el show: La imagen era perfecta, es un honor cerrar una pasarela de ese calibre.

And last but not least: The jewelry: WOW. Love his references to the most exquisite and exotic flora and fauna: dragonflies, leafs like from carnivorous plants and other random quirk-golden sprout were the perfect match for the incredible presentation.

Y por último, la joyería, WOW: Amo sus referencias a la flora y fauna más exquisita, libélulas, hojas como si de plantas carnívoras se tratase, y alguno que otro retoño en oro, fueron la perfecta combinación para la increíble presentación.

Have a nice weekend!
¡Tengan buen finde!

I believe she's selling a knock-off of Alexander McQueen - not sure by whom :) That's why they cost $80. Lanvin collection is madness - very attention-to-details.
