Spring/Summer 2017 is a season full of love for Lanvin.
“Lanvin is all about romance, ” menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver confesses; he has literally inserted this love into the collection. We see metal arrow belts and necklaces which are also found knitted into sweaters, as well as love poems scribed around twisted waist bands, one reading “It doesn’t matter right or wrong,”.
The collection delivers an unstructured silhouette; an almost Romantic man. The clothes make a point of all being undone, untucked and untidy. Trench coats were slaved over as they were handmade, only to be purposely creased minutes before the show, reflecting the movement of the 19th-century man.
The S/S collection brings us colourful prints and laces with a patch or two. “I decided to be creative. There’s not much else I can do.” Ossendrijver admits as he puts his own aesthetic into the brand.
