Foregoing a traditional runway in Paris, Lanvin instead decided to display their SS24 season on mannequins inside the ornate rooms of their 8th arrondissement headquarters. It was a fitting format for the collection which contained so many tributes to the house’s founder, Jeanne Lanvin. After designer Bruno Sialelli left the house in April this year, the collection felt like a much-needed grounding and a reminder to everyone that the name Lanvin is a formidable force.
Eveningwear was best represented in the collection, with dresses featuring hand-embroidery and stunning crafting; deep saturated hues featured throughout, inspired by Guy Bourdin’s classic Lanvin advertising campaigns. The suiting for men was equally well-crafted, a green shirt featuring a black floral motif on the chest was matched by another flower on a black jacket. Despite it being a summer collection, there were many coats, including a spectacular dusty pink number that just screams classic Lanvin.
