PARIS — Thursday evening belongs to Alber Elbaz and Lanvin and this season’s engagement in no way threatens this ownership and frankly speaking may it never. The joyous twinkle and overall abandon that emanates from the carefully considered details belies the very exacting with which Elbaz creates each and every look of his collections. This is part of the magic that is Lanvin, which seemingly occupies an evening that never ends and a champagne glass that never empties. Thursday night that tune was carried most confidently on the runway by no less than nine models at Next including Lida FoxPiene BurgersWangyLili SumnerLineisy MonteroLiza OGrace HartzelOlga Sherer, and Odette Pavlova. Cue up Boléro and let the procession begin for this is Lanvin.
