Brides-to-be who want a little avant-garde for their big day can now look to Lanvin. Despite his hectic schedule, Alber Elbaz has squeezed in a bridal collection for Lanvin called Collection Blanche. His tongue-in-cheek creations hit the Dover Street Market display windows a few weeks ago. They include a kaftan (for the bride in the sun), a trench (for the on-the-go gal), a tulle cardigan (for the romantic), and many other styles that go against the classic grain. Innovative indeed, but did we expect anything different from a man who sports a bow tie nearly as big as his head?
