Lanvin stayed close to its roots with its menswear display on Sunday, showing a romantic collection imbued with lived-in elegance.
Lanvin’s artistic director Alber Elbaz — who directs the label’s menswear designer, Dutchman Lucas Ossendrijver — said they had aimed to create a collection that looks lived-in.
“I wanted to give that kind of emotion to clothes so they don’t look like they you just took them from a rack in the store, but maybe from your suitcase,” Elbaz told The Associated Press.
“Speculation is mounting in Europe that Lanvin owner Shaw-Lan Wang is seeking a minority investor.
According to industry sources, the Taiwanese publishing magnate, who bought Lanvin from L’OrÃ©al in 2001, has not given anyone a mandate to sell the business, but has been in contact with potential partners at a time when the brand is enjoying strong momentum and rapid sales growth, sources said.”
