Alber Elbaz Page 1
We love the sophistication of black lacquer packaging as much as the next cosmetics junkie, but sometimes a girl just needs a little something to brighten up a morning makeup routine. Enter Alber Elbaz’s whimsical new Lancôme makeup line, due to hit shelves worldwide June 15. We’ve got a sneak peek of the goods right here.
Being in the same room as as Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz is quite the humbling experience. We’ve long admired his work, and he’s one of the funniest and most down-to-earth designers, so sitting in on his “Master Class” chat with Harper’s Bazaar editor-in-chief Glenda Bailey was a real treat.
Minnie Mouse is strutting her stuff in Lanvin again, but don’t worry, she’s not getting a digital diet like in that Barney’s holiday video. This time, she’s wearing a custom design by Lanvin’s Alber Elbaz for Disneyland Paris‘ 20th anniversary parade in March.
With designers like Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, and more dividing their time between New York and Paris, we’re sure Skype consultations are on the rise, but this is probably the first time the web-based calling service has made such a high fashion cameo.
We are totally loving Alber Elbaz‘s use of real people instead of models, in Lanvin‘s fall campaign. We were so obsessed that we spent a solid afternoon digging up everything we could on the cast of characters, and now we’re learning even more about them in the brand’s new campaign video.
There are many reasons we love Alber Elbaz and this one just adds to the growing list. The Lanvin designer cast a spread of real women and men between the ages of 18 and 80 for his fall campaign. And the ads are awesome.
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Plus 5 more reasons to love fashion’s heartwarming-est designer!
To celebrate his tenth anniversary at Lanvin, Alber Elbaz took to the stage to serenade his audience. And yes, your suspicions are correct: it was the cutest thing ever.
OK — time to give major props to Glenda Bailey and the smarties at Harper’s Bazaar. What other magazine could get a group of major fashion designers to agree to have themselves painted into invisibility against a backdrop of their work? Oh, your interest has been piqued? Read on.
Remember that awesome video of Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz made of himself dancing around with models to promote the fall collection? Well, he’s made another one, and this time he’s turned his own holiday windows into a clubby dance floor.
Like any good artist, fashion designers take their work (and themselves) very seriously, which often makes listening to them talk about their work about as interesting and exciting as watching paint dry. Alber Elbaz is one of the few exceptions (notable company: Karl Lagerfeld, Tom Ford), mainly because he has such a good sense of humor about the whole thing.
Well, we officially know what our favorite campaign video of the season. Lanvin, you totally win.
If there was ever a fashion party we’d have loved to attend, it was last night’s surprise fete for Alber Elbaz‘ 50th birthday. Held at New York City’s The Boathouse restaurant and co-hosted by Lanvin and Paper magazine, the soiree was attended by a tightly knit guest list of 100 of fashion’s finest and was really truly a surprise. Luckily for you (and us!), we’ve got photos and the inside scoop.
In the past year, both Gucci and Stella McCartney have joined the likes of Dior, Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Prada, and more by introducing children’s lines. Now Lanvin is getting in on the action. Yes, Lanvin for kids is a thing that is going to exist!
There’s been a lot of speculation as to who will replace designer John Galliano, who will lose his job as Dior‘s creative director and lead couturier after allegations of publicly spouting anti-Semitic insults. Insiders claim that while the company is in no rush to replace him in an official capacity, they have made offers to rising stars Haider Ackermann, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy and Hedi Slimane.
We’re suckers for a good horoscope here at Styleite and, more importantly, for Susan Miller. So when we heard that she was lending her astrological talents to V magazine by offering readings on some of fashion’s biggest names, we were delighted. And then, when we realized one of those names was John Galliano, we died. (A la Rachel Zoe. Not literally.) Miller’s predictions for Galliano, Alber Elbaz, and more, after the jump.
