Alber Elbaz's Resort 2013 collection was shown in a grand gold-gilded room, but the clothes were offset by an angled white background. This deliberate setting was to portray the simplistic elegance of the clothes whilst also hinting to that high-fashion grandeur luxury that only comes with a Lanvin label. Key trends to note here include stripes, jewel tones, metallics and peplums, which suggest that this mini-trend of extra material bunched up at the waist or hemline has some serious staying power. Accessories are fundamental this season and Elbaz has paid a lot of attention to handbags in particular. Chains, collars, cuffs and-bizzarely- visors are big players in this collection, especially with the more elaborate looks. And also, notice the new way to wear coats- 'The Drape'- gracefully spread over the shoulders without the arms through the sleeves. Expect to see the drape everywhere this Autumn and by the looks of things, right through until next Spring.
