Ten years after his first collection for Lanvin, Alber Elbaz offers us a unique book that traces the creative saga of a collection from the first sketch to the fashion show. The designer invites the reader into a secret world, revealing the creative process but also the human touches that enrich the designs. "Each collection is always different but the creative steps are always the same" says Alber Elbaz.
