Alber Elbaz loves a wrinkle. So he created a collection for Lanvin Spring 2011 that was a hymn to skin which is wrinkled in Fortuny-like pleating, stretched in all those sheaths. It was a spectacular foundation on which he could lavish increasingly heady colors. From its elegantly taupe-y beginnings, the show spiraled through acid yellow, hot pink, and aqua.He layered on the embellishment with pagan metalwork, climaxing in a gladiator skirt. There's always been that hard edge with him.
