LANGUAGE OF THE FUTURE
Keeping the spirit of Lanvin alive for the house’s Fall-Winter 2022 collection, creative director Bruno Sialelli explored the themes of sharp contrast in a well-curated symphony of textures, colorways, and contemporary construction. Celebrating the powerful paradox of fashion, Sialelli dug deep into the works of founder Jeanne Lanvin to find inspiration. Creating a modern narrative through patterned fabrics, rich hues, and embroidered facets, the collection is dotted with delightfully whimsical pieces, presented as a bridge between Lanvin’s past and present.
Standout moments from the collection include tessellated Art Deco patterns, the overlay of luminous sequins on sheer fabrics lending, and the rush of crisp ruffles spicing up eveningwear staples. Sialelli successfully translated Lanvin’s brand ethos, or as he rightly put it, “a house both distinctly Parisian, yet with a universal outlook.” lanvin.com
