Lanvin’s Fall 2009 was created for the chic modern woman, who likes a lot of black.

I would kill to wear every piece, but after the colourful Spring 2009 collection, I was yearning for more colour from this collection. Their was one red 40s inspired suit, with a peplum waist – peplums appeared on many pieces. A few neutrals, steel blues, and grey features, but they were very few and far between.

Fur was featured heavily, with fur trims on coats, and fur stoles wrapped around models.

I loved the dresses that had ruffles cascading down the hip, and the strong silhouettes of most of the pieces. This collection will be a hit, regardless of the colour palette.

Oversize necklaces, feathered hair bands and long black leather gloves, were the main accessories for this collection.
