Early every day when he is home in Paris, Alber Elbaz, the designer of Lanvin since 2002, has lunch at the same corner table in the bar restaurant in the Hôtel Crillon. Unlike most fashion designers who operate on a global scale, Elbaz is a kind of hands-on artisan who specializes in women. He has never been interested in trends or whether his creations—which are almost always beautifully constructed classic shapes with a twist—fit a particular age or demographic. Elbaz is committed to the idea that his clothes be timeless and, in a way, helpful: He wants to make it easier for women to dress for their complicated lives. he’ll spend days adjusting the fullness of a ruffle so that it doesn’t add volume to the hip, yet he’ll intentionally fray the edges. “I am not interested in perfection, and neither are the women who wear my clothes,” he explained to me one afternoon in early March at the Crillon. It was dreary and cold in Paris, and he was bundled in his usual corner in a black cashmere coat over his uniform of a black suit jacket, black too-short trousers, and a white button-down shirt.
