French Fashion House Finds Inspiration In Croatia

 Croatia and its beauty was the inspiration behind famous French fashion house Lanvin’s 2012 shoe collection. Lanvin’s famous Moroccan-born designer Alber Elbaz was so inspired by “Croatia’s coast, Croatian women and the blend of Slavic and Mediterranean beauty” that he produced a range of shoes and named them after places in the country.

The shoes, which range from 500-2000 euros in price, are named after city’s Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Rijeka, the island of Pag, and there are also even a pair named Croatia (pic above). British actress Tilda Swinton is a known fan of the “Rijeka” model.
