About the designer

Lanvin is the oldest French fashion house that is still active. Jeanne Lanvin established her couture label in the famous Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in 1889. She started as a milliner and went on to dress Paris’ upper class with feminine and flattering designs. Lanvin had no particular look that characterised her creations. She followed her instinct and held women’s confidence as her main objective.

In 2001, Alber Elbaz was assigned Creative Director for all activities, and Lucas Ossendrijver joined him as the head of the men’s line in 2006. Bouchra Jarrar took the helm from Elbaz in 2016, but only launched two collections before leaving the label in July 2017. Olivier Lapidus stepped up to take the role while adding an innovative and refreshing appeal to the Lanvin persona.

Collection autumn/winter 2017

The astounding autumn/winter 2017 collection embodied an ultra-feminine romance fused with a powerful boyish allure. This was illustrated by a lace ruffle blouse in soft pink paired with black leather trousers, a peplum blazer with black fishnet stockings and punctuated with a bird buckle belt and feather brooch. Fluid satin dresses in soft nude-pink were alternated with all-black silhouettes featuring leather culottes trousers, an organza maxi dress and a patent leather pantsuit. The all-white looks, on the other hand, layered smoothly with embellished tweed coats. Lanvin showcased an intriguing atmosphere merging black fishnet stockings with see-through lace pussy bow blouses.
