Alber Elbaz presented his latest Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Lanvin at Paris Fashion Week, celebrating the French fashion house's 125th anniversary.

With Elbaz's knack of appealing to the modern woman, there was something for every Lanvin lover to choose from.

A series of sporty updates on the T-shirt dress - one-shouldered, buttoned, featuring splits at the legs - opened the show, followed by unfinished tailored pieces (blazers with white stitching, stapled dresses).

While hair was sleeked-back into chignons and make-up was kept simple, there were plenty of statement accessories bringing a little bling to every outfit (chunky cuff bracelets snaking up wrists, oversized metal plaque chokers, gold hair combs).

Elbaz looked to the Lanvin archives for the dark brocade and spliced lace evening looks and landscape prints, and he also looked to the past when it came to picking his models, using a multi-generational line-up of exquisite women including Amber Valletta, Kirsten Owen, Violetta Sanchez and Esther de Jong. Who says only teens can rule the catwalks?
