Lanvin's Creative Director Alber Elbaz is one of our favourite people in fashion. He suffers from insecurities about his impossibly beautiful collections for the French fashion house every season, he fed us chocolate covered cherries at his show in Paris in February, and he's a serial workaholic. But it seems there's a chink in that outwardly cheerful armour of his, because the designer has revealed that he finds it impossible to work with people he doesn't get on with: ‘I cannot work with b*****s, I can't, I can't. Maybe I am too sensitive, I get blocked. There are some people who don't give a damn. With me, I find that if there is no energy flowing or no connection, I can't think. Talent is amazing - I love it, appreciate it. I respect talent a lot. But if you ask me, "Talent and b***h, or less talent and good?" I'll go with less talent.' Yikes, prospective Lanvin interns take note... [My Fashion Life]
