Lanvin's Spring 2010 collection justice. Viewing them only, one would miss the little playful details. One would not be able to see the hems, pleats, and creases; decipher the sheen, texture, and transparency of fabrics that could only inspire wholehearted devotion.
Notice, for one, the leftmost garment with its rough edges. The hems look so finely stitched that no machine seems capable of the finish; the fabric so delicate that imperfections in the cut appear inevitable. Of course, it may all be part of the intended luxurious effect.
joie de vivre! (As it turns out, also wonderful socks.)
Nothing seems impossible for this collection, which, from afar, looks low-key, but once inspected is sure to surpass all expectations.
