LANVIN Keeps Me Up At Night



Sometimes, concepts keep me up at night. Yesterday, I began work on a performance/ installation piece I am doing on the theme of 'strangers'. Brainstorming ideas from my pillow kept me up all night. And then tonight, as I began to count sheep, I became preoccupied with a shoot that I will be creative directing three weeks from now. The shoot will be conceptual; an experiment in exagerrated layering and proportion. For now, images of Lanvin's SP/SU10 show are fossilized on the inside of my mental image index. Alber Elbaz, is the master of proportion, and of combining a powerful silhouette with subtle elegance. Phew, now that that's off my chest, perhaps I can catch some shut-eye?

Ah, I know exactly what you mean, when you just get on a roll thinking about something and then suddenly it's morning! But I hope now that you have things figured out more you can get some shut eye :) And it sounds like that shoot will be amazing!

I totally agree. Plus his collections are always very cohesive, which isn't very common.
