“The future’s not ours to see,” Alber Elbaz serenaded the enthralled guests who had just taken in the fall Lanvin fashion show that marked his 10th anniversary at the house.

Typically, an elegant mood defines the designer’s runway. This time, he put that attitude on celebratory sabbatical in favor of a presentation almost manic in its pace and visual stimuli. Luckily, the clothes were beautiful, bold and at times, riotously fanciful. And always, they made sense. “The responsibility is no longer just about making a nice piece,” Elbaz said in a preview. “You have the responsibility, on one hand, to work on the vision, so you have to bring the newness, and it also has to have a zipper. How do you work with both?”
