Favorite of the Day: Lanvin

Austerity and luxury are as opposite as two words can be. They are, for the most part, the unstoppable force and the immovable object. Unable to coexist in the same sphere. But at Lanvin, there was an austere quality to the clothes. Something pulled back and restrained. Yet the fabrication left no doubt in my mind of the luxurious roots of the garments.

Walking that line between two such contrasting principals is rarely seen, much less handled with such dexterity.
