CLOSE-UP: Alber Elbaz, Beyond the Lanvin Legacy
The fashion world was shocked when Alber Elbaz parted ways with Lanvin in 2015. Known for marrying a technician's approach with the eye of a dreamer, the designer revitalized the house of Lanvin and, at its height, showed that the creative and commercial could coexist. The industry continues to await his next move.
