Paris Menswear: Lanvin

At Lanvin, Alber Elbaz and Lucas Ossendrijver presented a tough futuristic vision that the latter designer declared was “all about contrasts”.

Indeed, binary influences abounded: there were traditional pieces in tech fabrics and lots

of sharp, shiny black against clean, pure white. Although the overall feel was distinctly future urban, the echoes of 1970s glam rock seen at Margiela could be felt here, too. There were more slim-cut silver trousers (this time with a bomber jacket to match), and an androgynous feel to the cinched-waist silhouettes.

In short Offering a new direction for the label on a raised catwalk, Lanvin toughened up its act and took spring 13 to exciting new heights.
