Get the Lanvin Look

Lanvin Autumn/Winter 09

Lanvin Autumn/Winter 09

For Lanvin’s winter 09 collection, designer Alber Elbaz created some stunning breast plate and choker necklaces using unexpected combinations of gunmetal, pearls, black ribbon, and crystals. The unlikely juxtaposition of the gems with metal led to some stunning pieces that demand attention. The jewels in the necklaces “are decorated with galvanized, aged steel pieces created specially for the house, whose sudden beauty is tempered with the addition of pearls, crystals or grosgrain ribbon.” The chunky pieces are very architecturally driven and have a clear warrior inspiration, but the raw jewels adorning the necklaces add an element of femininity. As we’re sure you know, the price tag on these pieces is pretty large, so we’ve found some more wearable and affordable options:

Chunky Necklace £45 from Topshop

First, there’s the embellished bib necklace from Forever21. The size is much more wearable but the piece is very architectually interesting, even using some of the tubular shapes that Lanvin incorporated this season.

Next, we found this chunky collar necklace at Topshop, with bold geometric shapes.

Our last pick comes from Bananna Republic. The Monogram coiled bib necklace puts a very delicate, lady-like spin on the pieces that Lanvin created and really dresses up an outfit.
