I find it crazy how any of us can die at any moment yet we live our lives always planning for the future
Yves Saint Laurent gave women power, Chanel liberated them and when I joined Lanvin, I thought ’what do I bring to women? One day, I received an SMS from a friend in New York – she was in a taxi on the way to court to face her arsehole ex-husband, and she said to me ’Alber, I am wearing a Lanvin dress, and I feel so protected.’ That to me was the biggest compliment I ever received. To have a 500 gram piece of silk make her feel protected – that made me very happy indeed.
