Headed up by the revered creative duo of Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver, Lanvin have a rich history of over 125 years which informs their collections, typically a tumultuous mix of modern day luxury with their relaxed, soft tailoring and seasoned eye for detail.
The Parisian-based label’s new season collection faithfully holds to this unwavering ethos, presenting a range of timeless classics than are exponentially enhanced by way of carefully considered materials and stitch-perfect construction that holds up to the scrutiny of Elbaz and Ossendrijver’s exacting standards.
Lanvin Spring/Summer 2015, is a masterclass in modern luxury. Collegiate-inspired Varsity Jackets are expertly made in Italy, constructed with supple leather that breathes new life into a classic sportswear piece, whilst the Leather Panel Technical Jersey Hoody looks to the future with a traditional yet contemporary design with bold use of a bonded cotton fabric.
As you would expect, the collection is rounded off with the brand’s famed footwear which has a real cult appeal. Simple silhouettes that borrow elements from classic athletic training shoes, the sneakers are constructed in a range of opulent yet neccessary leathers, cracked calfskin for example, or innovative synthetics such as metallic mesh that highlight the exquisite detailing and immaculate production that goes into every Lanvin piece.
