Lanvin S/S 13

For a designer known for sumptuous confections dripping in colour and embellishment, Alber Elbaz's latest collection for Lanvin seemed slightly more restrained. His S/S 13 runway collection kicked off with a parade of sleek head-to-toe noir ensembles which, upon closer inspection, were actually quite ornate. Provocative cuts, high-shine textures, and artful draping, combined with heavy jeweled collars and neckpieces, gave each look the signature touch. And true to form, there were still shots of colour at the end of the show, thanks to colour-blocked frocks in acid yellow, deep purple, and emerald. Scroll through our slideshow to see all the looks, and check back tomorrow for our next Show of the Day!
