Lanvin Interview Fall/Winter 2015/2016 Menswear - Paris
An heterogeneous casting and a play with propositions for men at Lanvin.Rendez-vous in the Beaux Arts for the masculine collection by Lanvin this Sunday morning. And this season they offered not one, but a multitude of propositions with a play between proportions and volumes through a heterogeneous casting.
The trousers are worn high waisted, loose fitted and hang on the legs or tucked into the tops of the boots. A play of superpositions for the shirts, jumpers and jackets. The leather is applied with neoprene and gives structure to the jackets and parkas lined with shearling or embellished with chains and metallic eyelets.
The designer duo Lucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz once again not only offer a style, an allure, but question the multitude of needs of men and their differences, to satisfy them even more!
Interview Lucas Ossendrijver:
At the start of the show there were linear, military, minimal and grey silhouettes, in classic fabrics, with tweed, flannel, Prince of Wales check, and hounds tooth but very linear looks, the styles that were done in the past, and then the final of the show had black looks, but more futuristic, all reworked, hand embroidered, very worked on but black, with details, lots of metallic details, with little chains, and everything in between, was colourful, with layering and different proportions, it’s about individuals, it’s about everything which is individual.
It’s not one man, it’s lots of men, look at the casting, I spent three days doing the casting, on the streets, with the agencies, because I wanted a diversity, I think that it’s very important to have boys who are very, very different, it’s this story of different characters who make up the collection.
Do we have the need or intuition? Can the two co-exist? Do we have to be provocative to exist? Or can we be normal? Does the normal photograph well? Is the normal the new decadence? Is fashion better in a photo or in real life? It’s these questions that we’re asking ourselves, and that each designer in the world today is asking and we don’t always have the answer.
