The LANVIN Winter 2012 Ad campaign video is hot and features all of those real world models they used for the both the women and men’s collections. This time you get to hear them speak, so that adds more to the campaign.
Jacquie “Tajah” Murdock is 82 years old and she is starring in a brand new Lanvin ad campaign. She used to be a dancer at the Apollo Theater in Harlem in the 40s and did all kinds of cool things in her life. She is absolutely beautiful. Check out her interview on Fashionista right now! It is so amazing! Photo from Fashionista.
Thanks goes out to Mikelle from Gallivanting Boy for taking this awesome accidental action shot of me at the Bridal Show on Saturday. Check out the Lanvin ad below from Nitrolicious.
OMG! Watch Karen Elson, Raquel Zimmerman, designer Alber Elbaz, and two male models dance to Pitbull for Lanvin. This is the best fashion video I have seen in a long time. It is fun, cute, hip, and funky. Plus the fashion is great! Who doesn’t love a little Lanvin?
The fall/winter 2011/12 campaign video was shot by Steven Meisel. Who do you think was the better dancer? I think Karen has got Raquel beat, but Alber really did it towards the end. He is too cute for words. Also what is up with the sudden influx of fashion videos? I’m not complaining.
So I guess we can pretty much say that the House of Dior will survive without its genius John Galliano, while Lanvin continues to awe the critics. Looking at the Dior show yesterday, I think we can pretty much say that while the show wasn’t perfect, it was still a pretty fantastic show with elements that we have seen before like big hats, thigh high boots, and pretty fabrics. The part that made me feel some kind of way was when the entire in house design team came out in white lab coats at the end of the show with no John Galliano in sight, which brings me to this little tidbit.
Recently Ingmary Lamy was photographed in pieces from Lanvin ♥ H&M, very unusual to see someone older portraying as a model. A few “behind the scenes” shots have been released together with a video on the Swedish site Rodeo.
The result is still to come, but I think it looks great!

Did the people at Fashin catch a real preview of the Lanvin X H&M Collection?
I don’t like this Lanvin x H&M video because they blured all the dresses out. URGH!! They are being to secretive.
I would say that I am a bit of all of them. What do you think of these collections? I love them all and am totally fantasizing about filling up my closet with these clothes. UGH! One day my Paris fashion dreams will come true! Photos from Style.com.
Is the secret finally out? WWD seems to think they know who H&M is going to collaborate with next. When I showed you the videos, I was stumped. There are men and women in the videos, and they all say really cryptic and unique things. WWD seems to think that the quotes are from none other then Alber Elbaz, Lanvin’s designer.
While the camera never lingers on the faces long enough for recognition in the clips, the voice-over of designer musings, while electronically altered, are unmistakable Elbaz-isms. “Design is very important because it actually brings dream to our life,” says one.
Here is one of the videos in the series.
Karl Lagerfeld’s show was full of black, with few colors thrown in. Surprise Surprise! The main color were black ad white, with some silver and apricot thrown in. I was surprised that the bulk of his show had shorts, shorts, shorts, and even shorter mini dresses. There were flat shorts and pleated shorts and shorts that appeared to be made from leather. I guess Uncle Karl wants everyone to bear their legs this coming spring.
Lanvin was an exceptional show. Alber Elbaz really knows how to dress a woman. While I thought the makeup and hair was more than a little harsh, the clothes totally made up for that. This collection was full of hot dresses and dress suits with peplum swirling around the hips. I also like the color scheme of the show. There were you blacks and neutrals, but there were also reds, and blues, and yellows that popped. The jumpsuits were very ladylike and chic. I also like how Elbaz included the big billowy sleeves without making them look cliche. The shoes were gorgeous and very high. The last few dresses in the collection were great because the mixing of patterns and fabrics with the draping was just out of this world.
Dior carried the theme from the house’s last couture show into the spring ready to wear show. All of the models were dressed up as glamorous 1940s movie starlets with long wavy hair and shiny platform shoes with socks. The wore long flowing gowns or short jackets and trench coats with exposed slip dresses or camisole tops. Galliano also made dresses out of lace,lame, busitiers, and tulle. It was a very classic collection.

Fashion Rumour Karl did not sign his contract, rumour has it…..
Dear Shaded Viewers,
This is not a fact until you officially read it somewhere else but rumour has it that Karl Lagerfeld will not renew his contract at Chanel and that Albert Elbaz will take his place and Olivier Theyskens will take Albert’s place at Lanvin. Both choices make perfect sense to me. Schaparelli has decided to change directions and do a not so expensive line . Nothing is engraved in cement, these are still just rumours you will have to wait and see.
