Lanvin’s newest range, in time for Winter 2013, goes above and beyond the norm. No one captures the essence of la femme quite like Alber Elbaz: this fact is well cemented, but all it takes is a mini-collection to remind us all over again. Inspired by one of their 1950s evening bags, the Beyond trinity draws on the famed house’s rich and glamorous heritage. With an ad campaign featuring It-Brit Edie Campbell, it combines round, feminine shapes, retro Art Deco jewels, and a deep, restrained palette. The result: a perfectly edited line of bags for every facet of a woman’s mood (because Alber knows that we are as fickle as we are stylish).
Three variations for all three phases of your day: a medium-sized day bag with zip-closure, a flap-top cocktail bag, and a rigid clutch for all-out evening affairs. The Beyond Le Jour is a blend of matte and grained leathers with an easy adjustable shoulder strap; the Le Soir is a double-compartment case that transfers from business to pleasure, depending how you style it; and the La Nuit, a structured minaudière of gold lacquered wood or gleaming metal, topped with resin cabochons. Now we have something new to look forward to every moment of the day. Available this month at Lanvin locations worldwide.
