Pity The Fool Who Doesn’t Drool over Lanvin

Cue Sir Mix-A-Lot:

“I love Lanvin and I cannot lie.”

Last week’s Lanvin Fall 2013 runway show was a total party. The models strutted down the runway sporting super-sized script necklaces shouting “LOVE,” “HELP,” “COOL” and “HAPPY” piled on thick layers of chains. My brain played it’s own old-school hip-hop sound-track, as I pictured Mr. T and Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City holding court in the front row. How could this not be “FUN?”

Mr T, Lanvin's muse?

Mr T, Lanvin’s muse?

I like to think that because Alber Elbaz was born in 1961, same year as me (and President Obama!) he shares my taste in rap and television and gaudy neckware, which makes me feel like, “yeah, Mr. Elbaz, I GET it, I feel you, we’re peers.”

Or not.

Whatever the case, I’m down. Are you?
