Paris, Summer 1911, Jeanne Lanvin created the first wedding gown for her parisian house of couture. One hundred years have passed and yet the house of Lanvin has continued to create for several seasons the Blanche collection. Alber Elbaz’ spirited bride reveals grace and elegance, for Summer 2011.
Delighted by the feel of a satin ribbon, the sensuality of delicately draped satin crepe, or the impeccable finish of a pleated skirt edged with tulle and lace, her bridal laugh celebrates the happiest day of her life. From this immaculate wardrobe, she can choose between the discreet elegance of a coat-dress in washed silk faille, a top in washed canvas and ecru organza, embroidered with crystals, worn with a washed canvas skirt edged with white feathers.
The more daring bride will opt for a ravishing dress in mastic radzimir, a more flamboyant greige silk tulle dress, or a candidly long silk satin dress with a pompom finish and picture neckline. The modern tone of a washed techno linen dress entirely embroidered with crystals and silk gazar tempers the romance of a long dress in washed duchess satin.
An audacious ecru smoking suit displays flower-embroidered lapels, while a jacket in washed linen canvas partner a washed crepe voile blouse and a long skirt in ecru silk taffeta. The finishing touch of this capsule collection is an adorable ecru tulle veil embroidered with pompoms.
Whether she seeks a modern or traditional wedding, every bride will be eager to accept this proposal from Lanvin, just in time for a royal ceremony…
