Lanvin introduced a new chapter in its history as Bruno Sialelli made his debut with a beautiful co-ed collection…
It was pretty obvious that Paris Fashion Week was going to be colossal this season. With the passing of the fashion world’s patriarch, a slew of debuts and a flood of tributes, it’s truly a season not to be missed.
In addition to the aforementioned, Lanvin was faced with a major coin toss on day two of the schedule. Pressure fell on to Bruno Sialelli (the brand’s Creative Director) as he made his official debut for the maison. The result: he did not disappoint.
Filling in that void the brand has been lacking since Alber Elbaz’s dismissal in 2015, Sialelli looked towards where it all started for the Fall/Winter ’19 season.
Designing with Jeanne Lanvin in mind, Sialelli marked the brand’s triumphant return with a new take on luxury daywear. Ethnic influences, heavy embroideries and innovative fabrications were all key players in the collection.
Keen to showcase his craftsmanship from a previous stint at Loewe menswear, the pieces eased with fluidity, soft tailoring and clear-cut finishes – elements we all missed from the French brand.
There was a sort of earthy eclecticism that emerged from the collection, too. A utilitarian colour palette was painted onto printed dresses, lightweight knitwear, drawstring trousers, elongated suits and tribal skirts.
