The combination of Lucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz (as Lanvin's Artistic Director) is clearly a winning one.
I spotted a couple of bow ties (an Alber Elbaz/Lanvin trademark) on the streets this week:Benjamin (above), an actor, was wearing all 1960's vintage:
This guy (he is a fashion (textile) design student at Central Saint Martins) was wearing an oversized Lanvin bow tie and the cutest little Miu Miu ladybird brooch:
p.s. Anyone manage to see the Matthew Williamson for H&M collection tonight? I walked past the HUGE line-up for the preview at the Regents Street store at around 6:15pm. I suspect the collection is going to be ridiculously popular if the queue was anything to go by. Let me know if you managed to snag any pieces....or even a ride home in one of the Matthew Williamson decorated cabs which were waiting around the back :)
