The LANVIN Paris 'Splash' Windows Showcases Dangerous Fall Hues

As a striking installation at its 22 Rue du Faubourg location, the LANVIN Paris 'Splash' Windows are an attention-grabbing sight.

Featuring the stunning Fall/Winter 2012 collection dreamed up by Alber Elbaz, the fashion maison's display emphasizes the rich color hues in the garments. With splashes of color to match each separate, the installations depict mannequins attempting to shield themselves from the splash. Each instillation surprises with a play on the macabre.

Displaying the stunningly tailored cocktail dresses, charming top hats and fur-trimmed waistcoats, the windows of their Parisian location certainly leave an impression. Scarlet splashes appear blood-like and the dramatically defensive poses of the inanimate models give the overall effect of surrendering. Such wit from the house of Lavin makes it easy to give in to the irresistibly bold shades of their fall seasonal offerings.
