Style NoteLanvin 'Alber Elbaz' collection in Resort 2013 looks edgy yet elegant and well-constructed. The chosen color palette was as bold as ever, whether it stands as a monochromatic color, stripes, or in prints.
There are two looks that caught my attention especially because of their full-covered cuts and loose-fitting silhouettes.
First, is a loose pleated maxi dress in soft cream.
It was paired with a black leather waist belt. I love the breezy effortless spin yet elegant look they created.. The pleats give an edgy-touch to the look as well.. Score! ;)
(Styling tips: Wear an under-garment if you wear a dress like this to lessen the sheer-ness).
A little playful question to you: For this monochrome ensemble, what kind/color of handbag do you think will make the most out of this look? Do you prefer pair it up with a contrast bright color handbag which will provide an interesting punch to the look, or pair it with a handbag from the same color-shades to keep it looks classic?
If you have a daring-with-an-edge style, perhaps another look from Lanvin Resort 2013 could be your style..
The other covered-look by Lanvin I spotted on is a bit glossy printed-outfit.

The prints of scenery cover the whole clothes, from top to the ankles.. (I can see the unique prints of coconut trees placed at front of the pants.. hehe). I do not know what the outfit's material is but it looks a bit glossy.
And.. as if it's still less-"crowded", Alber Elbaz styled the outfit up with dense statement accessories: piles of necklaces, armfuls of bangles, and a medium-sized handbag, completed with a "funky" face cover.
Besides accessories, handbags are what Alber Elbaz has been focusing a lot of attention on lately, as he said in his presentation at the show. "I heard that bags are very important in fashion," he said again. So, we'll see what models of handbag would be showed up at the next Lanvin's fashion show.
Well.. for now, between these two looks, which one is nearly describe your style? ;)
