Alber Elbaz – the extraordinarily talented designer of Lanvin – received a lot of love when he decided to feature ‘real people’ in his Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign. Now that there is a video to go along with it, that love is sure to multiply like bunnies.
In the campaign video (below) a group of diverse and beautiful men and woman segue between stop-motion photo shoots and soundbites while wearing the best of Lavin’s upcoming collection; peplum-ed and fur-ed to the nines. We have an elegant 81-year-old woman from Harlem, eyes like diamonds, “new diseases (and like)”, strange obsessions and collections, connecting with the earth, douchey music, and much much more. Charming as ever, Monsieur Elbaz.
Probably due to the 90-something degree weather in New York right now, the fact that I shouldn’t be wearing black trench coats has me obsessing over them. Yesterday, when I was checking out the latest issue of Interview, I noticed that Kristen Stewart had decided to rub it in.
The Western Hemisphere may not be temperature-friendly enough for this ensemble at the moment, but the styling is perfect for the Snow White heroine. Maybe I’ll make a pit stop in Australia to test drive this baby on my way back to London….

A/W 2012 was one of my favourite ‘model seasons’ to date. Mixed in with the supers were a plethora of up-and-coming beauties: from Zuzanna Bijoch (above) to the i-D cover model Lina Zhang, there was a lot of fabulous werk happening in New York, London, Paris and Milan. One model even walked 73 shows! (See below)
