Lanvin by Dean L Merceron( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The House of Lanvin evolved from the creative force and remarkable energy of an extraordinary woman, Jeanne Lanvin. Her design career survived fifty-six successful and productive years. Lanvin is the oldest surviving couture house, in near-continuous existence from 1909 through the present day. Her body of work includes millinery, children's wear, haute couture, fragrances, furs, lingerie, menswear, and interior design among others. The continuous public appeal and the youthful image of these couture creations are lasting aspects of Madame Lanvin's career. At the heart of this book are key collections from 1909 through 1946, the year of Lanvin's death. Original fashion illustrations, beading and embroidery swatches play a crucial role in demonstrating her intricate, creative, and innovative techniques. The house of Lanvin is currently experiencing a period of great acclaim, emerging as a darling of the press, Hollywood, and the larger fashion community. With the most modern of efforts, Alber Elbaz, the current design director, is drawing from the rich Lanvin tradition to create an award-winning collection that at once evokes, reveres, and reinvents the intentions of its founder

These two episodes of Designer Marathon present an in-depth look at the career of the French designer Yves Saint Laurent. Number 9 examines his early career, which began at the house of Dior in the mid 50s. Hailed by fashion historians as a true design genius--the King of Fashion--his innovations included see-through blouses, the tuxedo for women, and the inclusion of pants in haute couture. He was the first designer to use ethnic models in his runway shows, and referenced other non-European cultures in his work. Saint Laurent can be credited with both spurring couture's rise from its sixties ashes and with finally rendering ready-to-wear reputable. Number 10 examines the fate of the house of Saint-Laurent in the wake of St. Laurent's retirement in 2002. Many feared the house would crumble without the master at the helm, but a stellar lineup of designers has flourished in his wake. Starting with Alber Elbaz, then Tom Ford, and now Stefano Pilati, these designers have stayed true to the spirit of the house
Alber Elbaz, Lanvin : 22, FBG St Honore, Paris 8e by Alber Elbaz( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 2002, Alber Elbaz debuted his first collection for Lanvin, the oldest couture house in Paris. One decade later, Lanvin has become one of the most coveted houses for its uniquely modern vision and desirable designs. Alber Elbaz, Lanvin documents the journey of one collection, from the first sketch to the final runway show. With the camera acting as a secret door, Alber, for the first time, invites the viewer into his own world. These images not only unveil the continuous process of design, the behind the scenes work in progress, but also the human side of creating a collection. "Each collection is always different, but the process of creating is always the same," says Alber. The monograph is the result of a close collaboration with Pascal Dangin, who edited and created a book that transcends Alber's vision and sensibilities - a book that needs no words. Photographer But Sou Lai's poetic and sensitive images mirror Alber's work. His personal, voyeuristic approach allows the viewer to share these intimate moments

Lanvin : I love you by Alber Elbaz( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important monograph on the complete work thus far of Alber Elbaz for Lanvin--one of fashion's most transformative designers working today, who employs mise-en-scènes as a principal way of staging his work. Under the helm of present design director Alber Elbaz, Lanvin is now one of the powerhouses of Paris fashion, and his respectful nod to the origins and founding aesthetic of Lanvin is tempered by an unrivaled, transformative energy that has created a new, youthful audience for the house. One of the pillars of Elbaz's work, apart from staging dynamic runway presentations, is a unique way of presenting his designs in the windows of their flagship stores, most notably in the boutique on the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. These mise-en-scènes, which change every month, are well regarded as elaborate spectacles unique even in fashion. Seducing passersby into his very distinctive brand of street theater and occasionally employing prominent artists of the day, Elbaz's windows are above all about the clothes, and his designs are given pride of place in a variety of elegant and often playful episodes. The book showcases the fashion and spirit of Lanvin with nearly two hundred compositions, from those shown at their boutiques to one-offs at the Crillon, and as far afield as Art Basel in Miami, as well as unpublished renderings of concepts hand-drawn by Elbaz"--from
