A stunning exhibition presented at La Maison européenne de la photographie (MEP) in Paris, highlights Lanvin’s artistic talent Alber Elbaz.

“The exhibition at the Musée Galliera was more about tradition and archives. Here we’re trying to show the present through photographs rather than with clothes, and I like showing my work in images because I’m superstitious, I don’t like showing my clothes in a museum. This isn’t a museum, it’s a house. In a house there’s a certain dynamism, living things, moving things.” Alber Elbaz said to NUMERO magazine. An exhibition honouring Jeanne Lanvin’s design was staged at Musée Galliera earlier this year in Paris.

More than 350 photographs, a mixture of backstage shows, ad campaigns and behind the scenes are featured in the exhibition by photographers such as But Sou Lai, Mark Leibowitz, Katy Reiss, James Bort, Juliette Da Cunha and Alex Koo. If you’re in Paris, don’t miss it!
