It wasn’t just the presence of Kris Jenner in the front row that signaled that the Lanvin Spring 2016 ready-to-wear show would be a spectacle of sorts. Designer Alber Elbaz had the house’s name featured in bright lights above the runway and showcased a show-stopping collection with a variety of sparkly eveningwear options that will certainly be a sell-out in the Middle East. Meanwhile the white, balloon-sleeved dress shirts and casual ruffle dresses will serve to up the ante on daywear.

Founder: Jeanne Lanvin

Owner: Harmonie S.A.

Designer: Alber Elbaz, 2002

Year Established: 1889

Spring 2016 Inspiration: Paris, city of luxe.

Star Pieces: The sequined looks in fire red, fuchsia, and lilac blue; the black lace cocktail dresses; the “Paris” trench; the leopard-print overcoat; the white, reptile knee-high boots; and the black slouchy ankle boots.

The Middle Eastern Sale: The region’s love affair with Lanvin will go from strength-to-strength here as Elbaz has once again featured many high society eveningwear options, as well as love letter to Paris separates, and luxurious accessories and footwear.
