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.
