Lanvin bags often tend to lean towards the prettier, more traditionally feminine side. Now it looks like they’ve switched gears for the time being, from their recent braided and tassel shoulder style to this latest riff on all-over studs. The brand is full of attitude this season…
If there’s any brand that can give me a craving for something sweet, so to speak, it’s Lanvin. There’s nothing saccharine about this Sugar; it’s all real and ready to go.
One of fashion’s most exciting aspects is the creative spirit of turning the ordinary into something much more, like the everyday, mundane safety pin. It’s not hard to see how they would inspire designers, especially clothing designers who use safety pins daily to drape, cinch and perfect.
It always excites me when Christian Louboutin cooks up a great (read, somewhat restrained and sophisticated) new bag, and this one is the pinnacle of unfettered chic.
