The new creative director (since Resort ’17):
Bouchra Jarrar (pictured above), 47, who has had her own couture house for the last seven years, worked for Jean Paul Gaultier (jewellery department), Balenciaga (under Josephus Thimister and Nicolas Ghesquiere) and helmed Christian Lacroix’s couture house.
Modern femininity. Sensual clothes and accessories that women will nd pleasure in.
The hot items:
Alber Elbaz’s Lanvin focused on a lot of evening numbers. Jarrar did the same with pyjama-style three-pieces, some of the loveliest slip dresses (cocktail to maxi) and tuxedos. And she updates them with chain chokers and wrist cuffs, chain-mail ties and beaded evening slides.
