Lanvin Loves Leopard

Alber Elbaz  at Lanvin offered some straightforward looks for pre-fall — grey flannel suiting, a black denim trench worn over a washed leather vest and skirt—but throughout Elbaz took his inspiration from the ‘leopard lady’; a real Frenchwoman that the designer and his team often see in the streets around Paris.  Never without her leopard coat,  even at the height of summer her animal aesthetic informed the collection's mix-and-match prints,  collaged furs, and jewelled tops and skirts. Alber's more-is-more layering is sure to translate into an item driven big cat fest on the high street, but for those of you who can't wait till the autumn we love the look shown with a  50’s silhouette from Posh Girl Vintage, and for those of you on a more modest budget you can rock the look with an 80’s vibe for a mere £20 at Stegnome Vintage
