Alber Elbaz, Lanvin Designer Who Became Unlikely Face of The Once Obscure Brand, Is Stepping Down

Announced today, Alber Elbaz – who became the unlikely face of the once obscure brand 14 years ago – is leaving Lanvin, a 126 year old brand started by Jeanne Lanvin who initially started making clothes for her daughter Marie-Blanche de Polignac. The clothes started gaining the attention and a heritage brand was born. Who's going to fill Elbaz's shoes? – Who knows, we're still speculating on who take Raf Simons' place after leaving Dior last week. Could it be Elbaz?
