It’s common knowledge that Alber Elbaz is the sweetest man alive—so when we got word that his fall Lanvin Petite collection was dropping, we braced ourselves for some serious cuteness. And boy did he deliver.
The collection’s theme is fairy tale princesses and heroines, and in the behind-the-scenes video below, Elbaz helps little girls in bedazzled crowns play dress up with his rich confections. While the children boast a certain savoir faire, they still get plenty silly in front of the camera. Let’s face it, our five-year-old selves would’ve been giddy at the chance to play dress up with those duds (and our grown-up selves are still kinda jealous).
Watch the video below, and see what Elbaz’s candy pink dreams are made of. And if you need a reminder of just how adorable the designer is, read the hilarious story of his first job experience with Geoffrey Beene.
