Alber Elbaz’s Cake Jumping Birthday & Resort Collection
Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz‘s last birthday involved hanging out in his hotel room alone and then cleaning up a cake he dropped on the floor gifted to him by the hotel he was staying at. After news circulated about his very unfestive day, measures were taken to ensure his fiftieth would be one to remember. Last night Elbaz was surprised by friends with a swanky party and thanks to Joe Zee’s tweets we got a glimpse of the event. The highlight of the night, besides the guest of honor, was a woman jumping out of a cake and considering it was a fashion crowd, cakes are much more fun to jump out of than eat.
Elbaz is currently in New York to present his Resort 2012 collection for Lanvin. He showed his diverse Parisian-chic style with textured garments, tweed, a draped gown, and a few more casual pieces to magazine editors and media today. Zee was also on hand and shared the following photos of the new collection.
Zee also tweeted about the designer’s new kid’s collection- you know, because all girls (big and little) need frilly Lanvin dresses.
