It’s the 125-year anniversary of the house. An exhibition dedicated to Jeanne Lanvin will be opened at Paris’ Palais Galliera this Sunday.
For a fashion house with 125 years of history, “What is my story?” the designer, Alber Elbaz, asked himself. “I went back to the place that’s my [birthplace], which is Morocco. I started to think shapes and squares and volume and the whole idea of dressing there.”
Morocco, a country of contradictions, inspired Lanvin fall winter 2015/2016 collection, with the idea of starting with something totally nomad and urbanized.
The gorgeously beautiful collection, including boxy navy jacket, tuxedo-striped pants, flowing dresses, were paired with severely militaristic boots, featuring tasseled rope tied at the top, lace up front, thick molded battle-boots sole or high chunky heels, decorated lavishly via pilings of ostrich leather, snake skin patchworks, Napa leather, brown and golden flecked metallic leather.
The notion of constumery is dispelled with clean silhouettes, wonderful manipulation of rich materials and textures, as well as the Moroccan-inspired detailing of golden piping, knotted cord and tassels, ultimately achieving a balance of fashionable chic.
