These Lanvin Slides Will Be on the Feet of It Girls in No Time
If you tuned in to Lanvin's Spring '17 live stream from the States, you likely had to wake up pretty early to do so: 6 a.m. on the East Coast, 3 a.m. on the West, just to be exact. It's a shame we didn't already own all the pieces we saw walk the maze-like runway at the Hotel de Ville in Paris, made of silk, satin, and other flowy materials, all of which would've made hopping out of bed and getting dressed a whole lot easier.
For her first-ever collection for the fashion house, new Artistic Director Bouchra Jarrar perfectly summed up her vision in the show's notes. She's been "building clothes around the body," the piece of paper said, "unveiling and veiling the silhouette," and also loves to "cross borders between femininity and masculinity." Blazers and collared jackets were paired with sheer dresses and skirts that seemed to float on by. Suits were slinky and looked somewhat like pajamas, which is great news for fans of the trend. The color scheme was mostly neutral, favoring black and white with pops of purple here and there. Plus, the shoes. There's a strong possibility those jeweled slides will be on the feet of every It girl, even before they're available for sale.
