Lanvin's head designer Alber Elbaz has spoken on designing. He explains that he believes perfection is only reachable in death because he sees being perfect as "the end" and he often even tries to avoid having everything completely flawless because he learns from mistakes: "For me, perfection is the end: you always talk about people being perfect when they're dead. When I went to Saint Laurent, everything was so perfect, all I wanted was to make it imperfect. I put the wrong girls with the wrong shoes, the wrong looks, and the wrong styling. I don't believe in perfection; I believe in making mistakes."

The designer admits that he thinks social media has made life too instant and thinks people are always in a rush, especially to be the first to share something new. Alber explained that it once ruined a show and he thinks it can be a "tragedy" when information spreads too quickly: "I once said, not everything in life is instant [like coffee]. Everyone is in such a rush. We always do a little rehearsal before our show in Paris, but last time everything was on Instagram five minutes later. It was the boyfriend of one of the models [who blew our cover]. We asked him why. But he didn't understand the tragedy of it. It's not like we're the FBI or the CIA, but there are things that deserve time. It's the same when people sit in a restaurant and post a picture of their food before they eat."
