LanvinSpring Summer 2014 Paris

Runway Review

Lanvin’s spring collection, designed by Alber Elbaz, was full of the label’s usual suspects—filmy dresses, oversize novelty jewelry, and tattered ruffles among them.
But one item was slightly off fray. Eight of the show’s looks included purses that looked like trash bags—effectively bringing new energy to high-low fashion culture.

If you have a thing for trash, specifically Eurotrash, then Lanvin’s spring goods may be perfectly tailored to your taste.

Writes Style.com critic Jo-Ann Furniss: ‘There did indeed seem to be a little play on the idea of "Eurotrash" in the show, with many of the models clutching trash-bag-style handbags to reinforce the point.’

The trash bag clutches, which conveniently come in an array of finishes (shiny, sparkly, matte, and silver), may just be Spring’s most exorbitant accessory.
Those familiar with Lanvin’s pricing know that these purses will minimally clock in at around $1,500, but since they are part of the label’s ‘runway’ collection, it’s not unlikely that they would cost far more.

The bags complemented a collection that included a lot of shiny, metallic fabrics. They were fashioned into a spread of Euro-friendly jumpsuits, cocktail dresses, and miniskirts. There was even a gold python motorcycle jacket…with short sleeves.

For the record with a post show interview Alber Elbaz was clear to note " i don't make garbage bags", In that case it might be safe to just refer them as "shiny sacks"
