With denim and chambray the fabrics of choice this summer, eyes are on designers who are able to give these humblest of cloths shapes that are flattering and, dare I say, elegant. After what was shown at Chloe and Jean Paul Gaultier, I was beginning to wonder if anyone could breathe new life into the fabric Levi’s has made a modern staple. So it was with delight when the results of the collaboration between Lanvin and Acne were released recently. Denim has never looked so smashing. The dresses, in particular stood out, all with the sensual qualities that Alber Elbaz has introduced to Lanvin, and the shapes, the assymetry, the ruching!
They’re simply the best.
