Lanvin Alber Elbaz Red Evening Coat Runway, 2006
Alber Elbaz is a visionary in sculptural cloth. Bringing an architectural feel to Lanvin, the 2006 Spring collection was a celebration of stark minimal designs and a color palette that can be described as “back to the basics”. Compared to the blacks, navies, and white tones, this candy-apple red evening coat was the collection’s showstopper.
Crafted from an intriguingly luxurious blend of cotton, cupro, and metal this evening coat has a crushed satin appearance that engages light in a regal way.The broad lapels emphasize the shoulders slightly as they careen over the bust accentuating there as well. Throughout intricate seaming holds much of the crinkle texture in place and simultaneously becomes invisible.
This evening coat can be styled a number of ways as seen on the runway with the sleeves rolled, or on actress Jennifer Connelly with a chunky belt. In a fashion editorial, Liv Tyler is styled with the collar standing for a dramatic look. The red look brighter when in sunlight and when under camera lights, it appears slightly brighter in the images then it does in person.
