Remember those ribbon tied, pearl woven and plastic bead necklaces Lanvin pushed into the mainstream? Maybe they got tired of being knocked off by Banana Republic and others, because for fall winter 2010, Alber Elbaz has gone to a dark place. The models looked like the love child of Morticia Addams and Ozzy Osbourne, and the jewellery had a feral (think massive tiger teeth necklaces and metal studs) and brutal quality. Something tells me these will be a lot harder to knock off.
If you crave the look of gothic churches, methinks Lanvin’s fall accessories will be right up your alley (or should that be chancel…)
