Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz announced this weekend that he's been very busy writing a book that documents the entire design and production process that a Lanvin collection undergoes. It's set for publication early next year, and at 700 pages of text and photos it'll hardly be light reading —  but then some of the pages will be blank, because "that is how I start every day," Elbaz explained.
