Lanvin S/S 2010.


03.
This collection is easily one of my favourites of the season. Alber Elbazv and Lucas Ossendrijver went for the 'anti-uniform,' as they said - a crisp silhouette of tapered, high-waisted trousers in shiny microfiber, cuffed shorts, and sleeveless blazers. A dark palette of blacks and greys was dotted with bursts of emerald green, burnt orange, and a sort of dusty ruby. Everything about this collection I love: the gorgeous rainbow of colours, the glasses, and that logo mirrored necklace that would normally be oh, so tacky but somehow works wonderfully. All under the dim scarlet lights of Paris' romantic Salle Wagram. Even the styling, with platinum blonde wigs and penciled-on moustaches, has completely won me over. It's lovely to see someone who could have easily stayed safe this season take on this challenge of creating something different and edgy, and come out with an entirely new constellation of things men cannot live without.

Full Collection.
