*** Sharing this fun post from 2018 as we mourn the recent loss of designer Alber Elbaz.
Starting NYFW off with a fabulous fete to celebrate the colorful collaboration between Alber Elbaz and Lesportsac! Fresh off the plane and straight to this magical kingdom of color, sweets, bubbly and FUN was the perfect way to kick off my time in NYC.
This party perfectly suited the Alber Elbaz joyful, exuberant style and happy up-beat prints which adorn the classic Lesportsac shapes. For the past year, he’s been working with the brand on a series of nylon bags, backpacks, and weekenders printed with his carefree sketches. “It was a nice project with nice people—you know, I’m very sensitive to the people I work with, and I felt very comfortable with the team at LeSportsac, the Japanese and the American teams,” Elbaz begins explaining how the partnership came to be. “I liked the idea of a democratic and iconic company that is there for so long and known for its sketches, so I thought, Why not? It will be fun!”
And FUN totally sums up this happy party that started my NYFW adventures off on a joyful note!
