Alber Elbaz has opted not to use runway models for the Lanvin Fall campaign, instead choosing to feature real women and men, ranging in age from 18 to 80. The images by Steven Meisel runs the human gamut as Alber took each subject’s story into account before deciding the theme of their portait in the apartment-like setting. Alber tells WWD:
“I was interested to bring these clothes back to the street somehow, and seeing how they look on different ages, different sizes. It felt like a crazy family, and I like that.”
Rumors are that the portraits include an immigrant, a waiter, and an elderly woman who always wanted to be a model. Alber made her wish come true.
We’re dying to see the rest!!
