NEEDLE & THREAD
“It’s not about the front or back of a dress.
It’s about what’s in between...the human being, the person.”
Celebrating ten years of ALber Elbaz, Lanvin's hardcover book is a hardcover book revealing several key creative processes of the designers spirited take on the modern female. Lanvin guides us through the ins and outs of couture fabrication, and we see the vast array of materials needed to create one, perfect dress. As an ode to the skilled artists who render Elbaz’s fabric confections in needle and thread, the finish of the book is amazing and will fit the shelves of any book-lover'. All handmade and fabric-bounded, the luxurious details include hand-gilded edging, engraved typography, and black foil stamping on the spine and cover.
