Dior’s Kim Jones has designed the official off-field uniforms for Paris Saint-Germain, the best financed football team in the game, led by most famous attackers from Argentina and Brazil, Lionel Messi and Neymar Jr.
Alber Elbaz, the renowned fashion designer credited with giving classic tailoring a more playful edge, was buried in Israel on Wednesday following his weekend death in Paris aged 59 after a battle with Covid-19.
Alber Elbaz, who died Saturday, created collections for a half-dozen fashion houses including his own, though it was a 14-year tenure at Lanvin that earned him a place among the Pantheon of great all-time designers.
The designer passed away in Paris at the age of 59. He had recently launched his own label, AZ Factory, in collaboration with Swiss-based luxury group Richemont, and previously led design at Lanvin from 2001 to 2015.
