This archival piece from Alber Elbaz’s decade at Lanvin has been dusted off and reissued.
When a heart is this oversized, it loses any sense of girlish sweetness and takes on a harder edge. The dark and gritty pewter setting also sweeps away any fluttery sentiment. Worn as it is here over a bold colour, it really makes a great statement. Available at Net-A-Porter for USD $1790.
Happy anniversary, Alber, and happy Valentine’s Day to you. Hope it is filled with glitz, glamour and love.
