Lanvin Alber Elbaz Black Grosgrain Ribbon Coat-Dress, 2012
Alber Elbaz can be credited with revolutionizing the age-old couture house of Lanvin. His sleek design style and eye for impactful color modernized the brand so much so in the contemporary era that Elbaz is almost synonymous with Lanvin. From the 10th year anniversary of Elbaz’ tenure at Lanvin, this coat dress is done in black satin on the back and grosgrain ribbons pieced to form the front.
Vertically stitched, the grosgrain ribbons provide a ribbed texture to the front that extends from the top to the uneven hem of the coat. Adding to the boxy silhouette, oversized sleeves also done in grosgrain add an almost futuristic edge to this coat dress. A standard jewel neckline and the simple single-piece satin back contrast the more rigid ribbon front. A glass-beaded flower button detail decorates the centre front neck of this coat dress. A collectors’ pieces, this Lanvin coat dress is versatile and can be worn alone or easily paired as a light cover up.
