Paris Fashion Week: Lanvin Fall/Winter 2011










The Verdict: Metal trims seem to be Alber Elbaz’s choice this season when it comes to the details on the bags. Bags from Lanvin’s Fall/Winter 2011 are mainly structured this season, and once again, exotic skins conquer the runway – python, croc, haircalf/pony hair (can’t really tell from the photos), and even tortoiseshell which is a rarer material to use especially in constructing the whole bag (again, I can’t really tell from the pics whether it really is tortoiseshell, as it could very well be plexi instead). I’m not really loving the hard-cased minaudieres, but I really love the day bags, especially the first one shown above in snakeskin with a yellowish mustard-like hue.
