    He was exuberant, creative and undeniably eccentric. But he was also fundamentally curious – and loved nothing more than asking questions. Designer and stylist Alber Elbaz worked at Guy Laroche and Saint Laurent before going on to be creative director at Lanvin for 14 years. In January 2021, he launched his latest project, AZ Factory – the fruit of his desire to democratise fashion. He passed away just a few months later, aged 59, after contracting Covid-19. We take a look back at his legacy.
