And the Lanvin drama continues. Fashion insiders in Paris and London are buzzing about the future of the brand, and whether or not it will include Erdem Moralioglu. According to sources, the British designer is “in talks” with the fashion house’s management, which is allegedly courting him to take over following the unceremonious ousting of legendary Alber Elbaz late last year. “Unfortunately, there is no comment at this time,” said a representative from Karla Otto, one of Erdem’s public relations agencies. But according to our source, the deal is far from done—after the hotly-publicized drama following the well-loved Elbaz’s ousting, signing a top talent to team Shaw-Lan Wang is going to be “a tough sell.” Until a new creative director is secured, Chemena Kamali and Lucio Finale are heading up a team of designers to complete the Fall 2016 collection. Expect more news soon from Elbaz, who has been approached by numerous investors and luxury houses in the wake of his successful resuscitation of what was once an ailing fragrance brand.
