Lanvin S/S 09 Footwear Collection

Lanvin has just released looks from the Spring Summer 2009 footwear collection. I'm a huge fan of the grey pair shown above, it's in keeping with the classic design but at the same time the different use of material and the subtle use of the (usually excessive) pattern leather gives the trainer a whole new feel. What once was a loud trainer is now a whisper in a room full of elephants. However the best part about it is that they have managed to lower the volume without reducing the quality of the product, which is remarkable. The same thing goes for the all black pair although I'm not really a fan of how those came out, personally I would have added a slight under tone of a yellow, orange, lime green or even grey in there with the black. I really like the way that the boat shoes came out, there is a smooth transition throughout the shoe from top to bottom; simply beautiful.
