Paris Fashion Week Menswear AW15: Lanvin
School's in session
This season, Lanvin's men's collection was strong with a moody and dark palette, filled with luxurious outerwear and tailored silhouettes. The Autumn/Winter 15 show opened with a set of uniforms, as creative director Alber Elbaz and menswear designer Lucas Ossendrijver focused on gray mélange fabrics or Prince of Wales check on baggy trousers, tight jumpers and shirt-like jackets.
Infusing a bohemian/rock 'n' roll vibe – think bad boy John Bender from '80s film The Breakfast Club – throughout the lineup, looks started to appear with heavy layers, leather jackets and graphic collar shirts.
Meanwhile, sculptural topcoats were worn with high-waist pants (a Lanvin signature), chunky cardigans and an overall cool slouch. "Less of a uniform and more of an individual," Elbaz noted on the AW15 looks. "That's the most important thing: Not to get lost in fashion, but to get lost in translation."
