From Lanvin to Carine

So you've seen the gorgeous LANVIN ads for women this season, now feast your eyes on Mr. Elbaz's ad campaign for men for summer 2008.

Gentlemen, this is how you do it.

The collection is described as a "connection between city and sport, mixing influences with chic", using the most lightweight fabrics that move with the wind, taking shapes in the slightest motion. A lot of layering were also used and lots of washed mineral tones.The brand's 2008 fall collection is undoubtedly fabulous with its mixture of that 20's style which reminds me of Hitchcock films.

For the ladies who want a dash of masculinity without losing that grace and style Lanvin's suit collection for women is just as astounding as that of men's. I love it and I cannot wait to see Carine Roitfeld looking slick as ever in one of those power suits. Speaking of Carine, it seems like her rivalry with the queen bee of American Vogue is getting more and more intense.

In a recent interview with the New York Magazine entitled "The Anti-Anna" she relates her feelings about over exposure with some Anna Wintour metaphors :

“It’s very difficult not to become a puppet,” she says of it all. “Like Anna, she becomes so iconic that she becomes like a puppet. I don’t want to be like that, I don’t want to wear this uniform, I don’t want to be just an envelope.”

The interview was amazingly interesting and candid recounting in a thousand words or so Carine's life, children, work, style and of course, Anna.

And oh, about fat people in Thailand too. (ouch!) To read her full interview, please click here:

Anyway, to celebrate my love for Lanvin, here's my latest acquisition:

Arpége Pour Homme by LANVIN.
Heart Notes: Nutmeg-Orris
Base notes: Australian Sandalwood

Arpége is quite strong but can be worn by both men and women, and I just love it. Perfect for the winter (although would just be too much for summer) season.

This perfume is the nearest thing I can get to a LANVIN and definitely makes me smell as good as Carine.
