Lanvin's New Book Makes a (Very) Generous Gift

Although Alber Elbaz has designed dozens of Lanvin collections since he joined the brand in 2001, Alber Elbaz: Lanvin only focuses on one of them.

Released last week, the coffee table book explores the creative process and production behind Lanvin's fall 2011 collection. In its 688 pages, no stone is left unturned, making it a very neatly focused, in-depth view into both Lanvin and the man behind the silk cocktail dresses, floral pins and chain strap handbags.

From now until April 1, the book's available online exclusively on Lanvin's site. At $450, it's a little more expensive than your average Kindle download, but it certainly makes an impressive gift. Like the brand's beautifully crafted clothes, the book just looks expensive, from the antique-y cover to the gilded, embossed pages. (And, of course, the heft. We did mention it's 688 pages, right?)
