Remembering Alber Elbaz, the immortal fashion designer

He was exuberant, creative and undeniably eccentric. But he was also fundamentally curious – and loved nothing more than asking questions. Designer and stylist Alber Elbaz worked at Guy Laroche and Saint Laurent before going on to be creative director at Lanvin for 14 years.

We take a look back at his legacy.
