“Lanvin” Spring Summer 2013 Paris 1 of 2 HD Menswear by FashionChannel
The skinny teens that dress Lanvin clothing are the protagonists of a space odyssey tinged with romanticism. The entire collection develops on the theme of dualism: classic vs. technology, as illustrated by the alternation of total white or black. The pants are flared an high-waisted, combined with leather studded jackets; the double-breasted jackets in cotton have semi-sheer sleeves, the line of the shoulders is left to fall and sometimes it is absent in the translucent shirts and in the maxi t-shirts in jersey. The mini technical trench coat is wonderful, tucked into the pants, as all the other tops, but softened by a puffed back side that gives it an eternal dynamism. The small container bags overlap like jewels or accessories of a traveler; the shoes have, as always, rubber soles or play with the chromatic contrast of the cork soles or the blue python. The prettier suggestions can be seen in the suits made of tunics+pants in white flowers on a turquoise or black background (in a faded fabric) and the shirts with python or latex inserts (like the raincoats). The must of this spring/summer is the silver or slightly copper-colored lamè. We see it practically everywhere and it’s here developed in a classic (the suit) and sports (bomber jacket with skinny pants) version.
