Lanvin Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear SS2014
For the menswear collection of Lanvin, designers Lucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz dived into the world of surfers and skaters and translated that into youthful tailoring.
There was a common thread between fitted three-button jackets — which looked fresh — worn over “Great Gatsby” trousers, and jersey T-shirts paired with matching jogging pants. They’re both suits: one for business, one for leisure. Elbaz and Ossendrijver didn’t commit to a single silhouette.
What stood out across the multitude of options were the sumptuous, often feminine fabrics and a luscious palette: color-blocked shirts in crisp silk/viscose blends; and billowing macs in lustrous bonded wool and mohair.
