Lanvin by the book
For his first Lanvin collection presented at the Grand Palais in Paris, Olivier Lapidus returns to the essence of the house, while projecting it into the 21st century.
Emerald green, cyclamen, ruby, nude, pale blue, black, white and gold were the fetish colors of Jeanne Lanvin. And the alphabet of its style – kimono sleeves, pagoda sleeves, flared or twisted, flat knots, geometric cutouts, clovers, combinations, transparencies – is revisited here and there to create an ultra-contemporary and desirable…
Olivier Lapidus wanted to be inspired by all the figurative elements dear to the famous designer. Going even further. Even his name and initials, worked in Art Deco-inspired typography, became “LANVIN” and “JL” prints that dot the collection. This summer of 2018 will be, in Lanvin, that of lightness.
