Normally, a Perfect Pairs post is all pre-planned. This Perfect Pair was founded by accident, though, and this accident brought about a pleasant surprise. First, I spotted these Lanvin Polished Leather and Satin Pumps on Net-A-Porter, and they’re oh so lust-worthy. Between the fuchsia satin upper and the patent leather back, even I can be on board with this colorblock pump. Read More…

It’s definitely a mash up all right. You have a snakeskin, suede and holographic collaboration with these Lanvin Snakeskin T-strap Wedge Sandals. While this wedge has the all the aesthetic appeal I could ask for, what is really throwing me for a loop is the black suede platform.

The wedge’s ombre effect from electric blue to clear caught my eye immediately. Read More…

At this point, nothing you can put on a sneaker would genuinely surprise me. It’s a post-Jeremy Scott x Adidas world, and we’re just living in it. Most of the fashion taboos that still exit are for men, and usually for men who want to be publicly perceived as heterosexual. So where do these Lanvin Iridescent Snakeskin Sneakers fit? Read More…

If there are two things I’m guilty of binge-buying during the summer, it’s definitely wedges and nail polish. A girl can never have too many of either. I’ve been lusting after these Lanvin Watersnake and Leather Wooden Wedges for quite some time now and found myself dreaming of the perfect pedicure to go hand in hand (or in this case, foot in foot) with the shoes.

Lanvin’s not immune to following along with a trend (these shoes are holographic, of course), but I’m continually impressed by often much the French brand finds ways to march to the beat of its own drummer when it comes time to make a shoe. The obvious thing to do with the Lanvin Pink Holographic Pumps would have been to turn them into a single-sole, pointed-toe stiletto, but that’s not what Lanvin opted to do. Read More…

Six months ago, Lanvin announced that it would be getting really serious about its bag and shoe lines for Spring 2013. I’ve waited patiently to see exactly what Alber Elbaz & Co. meant be that, and at least in the shoe department, it seems as though it means a big leap toward modernity. Designs like the Lanvin Pointy Toe Python Pump show no signs of the brand’s old-world French flare; instead, the Elbaz’s penchant for sleek lines has been couple with a heavy dose of modernity.

One of my favorite modern fashion tricks is the mixing of unexpected materials. For me, it all started with Fendi’s brilliant silk-and-lucite platforms several years ago. Since then, I’ve spent a lot of time mixing textures in my own wardrobe – leather and lace, denim and chiffon, suede and satin. It’s an almost no-fail way to look luxurious and but together a modern, stylish outfit. Read More…

Based on the Lanvin Grosgrain-Trimmed Elaphe Pumps, I’d wager that no, in fact, there is not. Lanvin is the loveliest of them all. Read More…
