Alber Elbaz, creative director at Lanvin, has created these dolls as a part of his current collection. As you can see by the pic, the dolls are whimsical and joyful in the representations of his outfits..
It wouldn't suprise me if Elbaz knows his mannequin history (see previous posts in June of this blog) and has created these as original french doll style mannequins for his collection.
There will be 800 limited edition pieces made, each hand painted.. At Belinda we have ordered a set, making me one happy VM as i will get to play with these very fun little things..
So i say a big hurrah for Alber Elbaz.. he not only knows how to tailor superbly, he also know how to make great displays and keep fashion fun!
