BEING one of the brands to have the honour of concluding this year’s Paris Fashion week, Lanvin delivered a showcase that evokes emotions of haute couture and points to the memories of its remarkable heritage. Organically tailored SS23 is set to celebrate the union of human ingenuity and the animate beauty of the natural world.
Translating the high organic legacy of Jeanne Lanvin, the brand’s current artistic director Bruno Sialelli took his inspiration from the flourishing season of spring and introduced the public to a modernised take on the exchange between “the raw and the refined, the perfectly unfinished.”
This delicate yet still sophisticated showcase displayed both men’s and womenswear garments tailored using breezy and sensual fabrics, such as bonded cotton, silk, leather and even eel-ski – all of them highlighted on the luscious feel of the collection.
The womenswear segment showcased Macramé executed in fine and weightless silk soutache – used as an underpinning technique for short and long dresses; it provided depth and dimension to the beautifully layered sheer fabrics. On the other hand, menswear presented sleek suit co- ords styled with long and glossy coats.
A genderless feel can also be spotted in numerous elements of the ensembles. For instance, both men and women stormed down the runway sporting delicate ribbed jersey knits, single-button suiting or trousers tailored in the stylistic of wool gazar.
This elegant and airy collection unravels feelings of love, happiness, and laughter, so perfect for the blooming season of spring. “Details are lightened, while luxury is heightened”, state the show notes.
