New York Times in studio interview with Alber Elbaz, Creative Director of Lanvin.
To eaves drop on Alber’s world and get to hear a tiny part of his story directly from his perspective was a treat. This self described, sometimes loner and always workaholic admits he didn’t have an office for over 11 years, until one day working around his very “clean and clinical” studio, as he puts it, where he produces his stellar collection, he decided to create an office. Something more akin to a sanctuary, where he feels he can be most comfortable, a place where “there was no color whatsoever,” and where he says he feels “skinny and beautiful” and that from this “black hole”, maybe he’ll have a better perspective on things. Interesting take on the famed designer.
