I've been a fan of Alber Elbaz's drawings and illustrations for a really long time. They are really adorable and unique, since no other high end fashion brand has anything similar. And of course, I like them because I think Alber Elbaz is one of the best designers out there at the moment, so I'd say anything designed by him, including smaller, whimsical items, are pretty lovely for that reason alone.
I've been gushing over items that have his illustrations on them several times before on this blog, like when I saw the Lanvin nesting doll set, when I saw the bridal themed greeting cards and when I spotted the Lanvin macaroons for instance, but I must admit that my collection of Alber Elbaz illustrated items is still not as big as I would hope it was. So it's about time I start adding some more pieces to it! And luckily, I did just that this weekend when I ordered a set of Alber Elbaz illustrated cards and envelopes, that were actually sold only in Japan during a short period of time, on Ebay.
