We sometimes feel guilty about the limitless hours we spend watching television, and how often we reference shows in various discussions.
So when we hear that a designer of the caliber of Alber Elbaz also gets a little inspiration from the TV, we feel mildly better about ourselves.
The bow-tied one is launching a pre-spring capsule collection for Lanvin focused on tailoring, and inspired by Glenn Close's character on Damages. All the pieces will be produced in the Italian factories that make Lanvin menswear.
We haven't worn a suit since our first job interviews after graduating college, but this might be enough to inspire us to yet again.
And with all this talk about growth, expansion and turning Lanvin into a "luxury supermarket" - perhaps like a less commercial Chanel - with additional capsule collections for bridal, jersey, long dresses and dip-dyed sportswear, it sounds like Mr. Elbaz isn't leaving Lanvin anytime soon.
